From the Back Cover:

A successful vegetable farm depends on business smarts -- accounting, marketing, customer service -- as much as planting and harvesting skills. Keith Stewart's practical advice and detailed in-the-field instruction guide you through every part of professional farming, from mapping your fields to designing a farmers' market stand.

 

Includes comprehensive coverage of:

- Site selection and good soil maintenance

- Tools, machinery, and greenhouses

- Selecting and planting profitable crops

- Organic weed and pest control

- Harvesting and storing vegetables and herbs

- Developing a business plan

- Marketing, packaging, and selling your products

About the Author:

Keith Stewart is a NOFA-NY certified organic vegetable grower in Westtown, New York, who has been selling to the NYC Union Square Greenmarket since it began. Keith’s garlic has been called “the most soulful garlic on earth” by Time Out New York. The New York Times said, “Keith’s farm grows garlic from another planet compared with the stuff in supermarkets.” He is the author of It’s a Long Road to a Tomato: Tales of an Organic Farmer Who Quit the Big City for the (Not So) Simple Life. His essays appear in The Valley Table, “the Hudson Valley’s only magazine devoted to regional farms, food, and cuisine.”
