How to Start a Farm with No Money


Here are some good insights from John Suscovich who started his farm a few years ago, and learn a thing or two in the process.

A farmer friend of mine told me the advice that he gives everyone who asks him about starting a farm. “Don’t!” Don’t do it. That is what he tells people, every time. If you hear that you should NOT start a farm, and you think to yourself, “Maybe you are right, maybe I was dreaming.” Then farming is not what you should be doing with your life. Now, if you think to yourself, “That is the worst advice ever. Not only am I going to be a farmer, I am going to be a great farmer. No Matter what it takes!” Then my friend, you are meant to be a farmer.
