About this title

Synopsis:

Microfarms—or small acreage farms—are gaining popularity across the country for their astoundingly high yields and great tasting produce, as well as their profitability. This handbook reveals the secrets of successful micro eco-farming and explains what eco-farmers need to know to start their own small agribusiness. Questions such as What can be grown? How do farmers reach their markets? and What sustainable production methods can be used? are answered in detail and supported be hundreds of real-life examples. A variety of unusual uses for crops are also provided, including producing organic spa products, building an urban greenhouse, creating a heritage rose farm, or cultivating a connoisseur apple orchard. Ecologists, amateur gardeners, farmers, and those interested in sustainable living will enjoy this in-depth look at the spiritually and financially rewarding aspects of this new field.

About the Author:

The author raised her children on a micro eco-farm and continues to study, research, and write feature articles on sub-acre or small acreage farms across the globe. In this title, she introduces the many possible full or part time ways in which land owners from rural to urban, are earning part time to full time income in an eco-friendly fashion. She is also author of the longer how-to title, The New Agritourism: Hosting Community & Tourists on Your Farm.
