Weekly insights for vegetable farmers and market gardeners who earn, or want to earn, a living growing vegetables profitably. The show is hosted by Diego Footer of Permaculture Voices. Each week I talk with a beginning, or experienced farmer diving deep into their story to find out what makes their market farm successful. I focus on farming challenges and struggles, sales and marketing, soil preparation, weed management, post harvest processing, appropriate technology, farm startup, market selection, and work-life balance.
AJ Zaycheck of Spin Cities Farm joins me to talk about what his first year in farming was really like. He also shares a lot of tips on what helped make the farm profitable in year one - from selling to time management.
