Forrest Pritchard, Ellen Polishuk – Start Your Farm


Do you dream of starting your own farm but wonder where to begin? Or do you already have a farm but wish to become more sustainable to compete in today’s market? Start Your Farm, the first comprehensive business guide of its kind, covers these essential questions and more:

Why be a farmer in the 21st century? Do you have what it takes?

What does sustainable really mean, and how can a small (as little as one acre) to midsize farm survive alongside commodity-scale agriculture?

How do you access education, land, and other needs with limited capital?

How can you reap an actual profit, including a return on land investment?

How do you build connections with employees, colleagues, and customers?

At the end of the day, how do you measure success? (Hint: Cash your lifestyle paycheck.)

More than a practical guide, Start Your Farm is a hopeful call to action for anyone who aspires to grow wholesome, environmentally sustainable food for a living. Take it from Forrest Pritchard and Ellen Polishuk: Making this dream a reality is not for the faint of heart, but it’s well within reach – and there’s no greater satisfaction under the sun!

Filled with lots of valuable information. I have a lot to consider that I would not have prior to this book.
