What do you do if you want to farm, but you really like your job?
Or what do you do if you want to farm, but you really can’t afford to farm full time at this point in your life?
Or what do you do if you want to farm, but you haven’t ever farmed before?
One option is to go the homesteading route and dabble in farm style production. It allows you to produce some of your own food and explore some of your interests. But it’s a limited model, because usually homesteading doesn’t scale. It’s more of a hobby, than a business.
Another option is to look at farming part time. Farming on the side. An epiosde that we have touched on in the show before, but one that we have never really focused on.
Today we will take a look at part time farming, or farmsteading, looking at what’s possible and how viable of an option it really is.
It’s a model that fits nicely in between homesteading and full time farming. It’s a model that might be more financially approachable now, it’s a model that might not require radical lifestyle change, and it’s a model that might pay you something to produce your own food.
And maybe best of all it’s an option that gives you a lot of future options.
For many of you listening to this show, I think that this option is the option you have been looking for.
Today you are going to hear from one of the more successful farmsteaders that I know, Greg Burns.
Greg’s someone who has a fulltime job in field that’s unrelated to farming, and gets his farming fix on the side, through his farmstead.
It’s a model which provides food, fun, and learning earning some money to boot.
Greg has been on the show previously back in episode 48. That episode focused on a lot on the why of farmsteading, today’s episode will focus more on the what of farmsteading… what’s Greg doing and how he’s doing it.
It’s an inside look at the farmsteading life style with Greg Burns.
