As I’ve mentioned previously on this blog, my dream is to be a small grower and sell to farmers markets and possibly even a restaurant or two at some point. I feel that, using biointensive methods, I certainly have the land to do it, though probably on a small scale for the time being.
Problem is, how to get there from where I am now. Current obstacles:
- The large field behind the shed needs to be cleared with a bush hog and leveled, and possibly tilled
- Irrigating all that land on well water; can the well support it?
- Weeding! Wire grass is a major problem
- How to protect that many plants (half an acre) from wildlife
I’d love to get in touch with some small growers who are selling to farmers markets and/or restaurants and gather some research on how to get started! If that’s you, please leave a comment below or email me at thegardendude(at)outlook.com.
