I’ve been thinking about farming for a few years now. After a summer of intensive, hands-on learning and working with other vegetable farmers to further evaluate if this is something I *really* want to do… it seems that I’m ready to go for it. I’ve got a business plan. I’ve got support from Practical Farmers of Iowa through their Savings Incentive Program. I’ve got support from family – including providing access to land. I’ve used some of my savings to buy equipment to get that land prepared for next spring. I even have a farm name! The next step is connecting with people who want support local, healthy food.
Your efforts to help with this – either by signing up for a weekly share yourself, or by sharing this information with friends and family – are much appreciated!
