Farming by NOT Farming - GFP S1:E3

farming by not farming

The most common question we get here at Farm Marketing Solutions is “how do I start a farm?”. That question comes from all walks of life and all corners of the globe. Seriously, we’re data nerds and our analytics say we get visitors from over 97 different countries.

Because there are 7 billion people in the world inevitably all of our stories and circumstances are going to be different. That is one of the inherent difficulties in agriculture. There is a lot of good information out there on “how to grow stuff” but the real art of farming and being a farmer is adapting that growing information to your specific situation.

When you’re starting out as a beginning farmer you may or may not have what the next person has for resources:

  • time

  • money

  • land

  • machinery

  • knowledge

  • mentors

  • experience

What you are going to have to work on the hardest is the delicate balance of your resources paired with your emotional strength to maintain that balance when the going gets tough.
