Have you ever wondered what it would be like to take your passion for gardening to the next level? Hobby farming – it’s not for the faint of heart, but the rewards can stretch beyond imagining.
Meet three families – the Busmans, Tysons and Burns. Each one has a different perspective and unique motivation that led them to farming. In spite of having no farming background, these families persevered for more control over their lifestyle and the food on their table.
When growing food becomes a revenue stream, life takes on a whole new meaning and Mother Nature never misses an opportunity to remind you who is in charge. From the good to the bad, and even the ugly, these hobby farmers aren’t holding back. In their stories, we are reminded that the most powerful knowledge sometimes comes from someone with firsthand experience.
Is hobby farming for you? Experience the lessons from the people who live the lifestyle every day. We think it will help you to envision the possibilities and prepare you to take the plunge into farming.
