Good morning my dear friends, do you sleep well? Today on this morning I want to write about how to start a small farm, and what do you need to know more about this NOT SO EASY business. I know every one of us wants to have our own small farm with a few types of domestic animals: chicken, cow, maybe goats.
What you can learn about farming today?
As we knew we are living in modern times. So, just a few of our population have a farm in the village or somewhere where is a great place near the river and nice weather. Whether for better land.
You can’t know everything there is to know. Some learning will have to be on the job, and trial and error is messy, time-consuming and sometimes costly. Yet it’s inevitable with farming, so embrace the process. But learn some, too. Balance.
Design and Plan Your Farm
Maybe you want to have a diversified farm – a small-scale operation that grows a variety of animals and crops. You might even be wondering how to start an ecotourism farm, where people will come to stay to see the workings of your farm and perhaps even participate in farm chores.
Set Up Finances
You will also need to decide on your business structure. Will this be a sole proprietorship, an LLC, or something else? Contact an accountant to get information specific to your situation. Financial planning should be in your business plan. It’s very important to set up a system for bookkeeping and accounting from the start of your small farm business.
After you prepare all your paper for farm, and when you find some amazing land for your first and small farm. Let’s talk about animals. Which one is the best for your start? I think for the start you need a few goats.
Down here I’ll share with you from the site here great 5 things that you need to know.
- Farming goats (for fun and milk) – These animals depend upon your stewardship and care and, in return, often provide you with food.
- Farming basics: Companionship– Goats are social creatures and as such generally require another goat for companionship.
- Goat basics: Fencing– They can be escape artists, especially if there is forage, hay, or food visible on the other side of the fence.
- Goat basics: Food-Goats will eat a lot of things but it is a myth that they will eat everything.
- Water- Lactating animals are especially in need of large amounts of good water. Be sure to set up your trough or watering system near a hose, pond, or water source of some sort.
How to earn money, if you have a small farm?
- Connect those who want to “go solar”‘ with the local solar companies, and create a win-win deal where they can do so without spending any money out of pocket, and you can earn money.
- Make quilts, table runners, mug rugs, pot holders, or placemats.
- Repair pallets and resell them,
- Chop wood and sell it.
- Assist people with their farm chores
- If you have experience with horses, find a stable that could hire you to muck stalls and feed.
- Do leaf clean up, trim shrubs, or snow removal.
Also, you van earn with few next things:
- Egg sales.
- Make homemade goods.
- Build rabbit cages, chicken coops, and tractors.
- Sell butchered rabbits as well as hand spun angora.
- Sell plants. Can you grow veggie starts, herbs in pots, strawberry plants, etc.? To begin, start more plants than you need and let your friends and acquaintances know about it. It’s possible to make several thousand per month during the growing season with this method.
- Grow Produce and set up a stand.
- Sell jellies and canned goods
- Teach others what you’ve learned.
