How to Make Money Growing Herbs
You Can Make Money Growing Your Own Herbs
- If you've got a small plot of land on which to grow your own herbs, you could make money doing it. The bigger your area of land, the more money you can make. And, making money is what most people are interested in, so this is how you can do it.
- Once you have grown your herbs, dried them and put them in labeled containers, you should then measure and package them up in half-ounce, heat-sealed plastic envelopes, check around to see what the going price is for herbs, then price them accordingly. Herbs aren't cheap, so a little bit of effort can be rewarded handsomely. (I ran out of chives and had to resort to the unthinkable - buy some at the supermarket. A one-half ounce container of chives was $7.66!)
- If you are a real go-getter and have a large plot of land on which to plant, say a half-acre or so, you will find that there is definitely a market out there for home-grown, fresh herbs. On the weekends, sell your packaged herbs at a Farmer's Market (almost every town has booths set up every weekend or every other weekend).
- Make sure to figure in your expenses when you set prices.
- Find all the nearby Farmer's Markets and sell at the ones closest to you.
