Vegetable Farmers?
« on: August 02, 2018, 01:48:50 PM »
Anyone here a Hobby Farmer wit ha vegetable based business? We have the opportunity to begin the process of moving towards a homestead, with plenty of good healthy dirt/open land. We've been toying with growing our green thumbs. We know it won't bring us great amounts of cash, it'll be lots of work, but we love working in the dirt, and love feeding our friends and families.

Might not bring lots of cash but should definitely bring an increase in life satisfaction!

Sounds like you have a great opportunity to do something you love!

My Cousin is a vegetable farmer outside of Vancouver. There is a law where if you sell a certain amount of produce you can get a farm property tax exemption. She's growing microgreens, hops, and a few other choice greens. It doesn't take much land to grow profitable greens. It's all about advertising I think.

So perhaps look into microgreens and check your local tax incentives for farming :)

How about a U-Pick?  You can plant several different kinds of berries and have fruit available all summer long.  Customers pick and you don't have to pay someone to harvest.  Add a gift shop and sell merchandise & other produce.
