Questions & Answers
Hi , I am a stay at home mum & love gardening. How do I turn my hobby into a business? Would enjoy to bring in extra income. Pam.
Hello Pam . Let's play it safe.You should test two aspects :First gain confidence in your grower abilities...prove that you have commercial capability by growing for family and friends....so start small. Then we need to check whether you have business savvy. If so , you are well on your way. We have numerous beginners just like you so you are not alone. Ask questions or start with a beginner pack. Good farming ! Les.
Hello VOF. I am a disgruntled office worker in IT ,looking for a SANE career. I agree that FOOD is the future so how can I get involved ? Garrett.
Hello Garrett. As IT and AI take hold in society , more and more people will 'escape' the rat race , moving to farms and nature. You are ahead of the herd so stay ahead with clever strategies. I recommend that you start modestly. Send me your CV and I will phone you to discuss a potential route to your success. L.
I have a small holding and am a fairly competent farmer...but not that sharp when it comes down to business aspects such as costing, branding and distribution. Your support sounds like a possible solution. Andrew.
Hi Andrew. You are potentially sitting on the crown jewels. This vertical growing will be a doddle for you. Two questions : are you adjacent to large markets ? Even though you claim to lack business skills , you may be an organiser. All farmers are usually organisers. Please send me your cv and farming profile and I will phone you. I am confident we can jointly evolve an attractive route for your consideration. L.
