    If you could be a Farmer, what would you have on your farm?

    I can't decide. I would either have a boutique winery, or, have a urban farm on a one acre plot selling organic veges/fruit to local cafes/restaurants. What about you?

    Farming can be tricky if not taken seriously.

    First ensure a thorough analysis of your soil by experts to establish types of crops suitable in your geographical region.

    Set apart a small portion to grow most of the foods you consume in the house and concentrate on organic produce for personal use.

    For the remaining larger portion of the farm, pick the most rewarding cash crop, establish whether a sound market exists for the chosen crop based on expert advice.

    Study to establish the pros and cons of growing the crop and grow it on a reasonable scale for the largest economic benefit if pros outweigh the cons.

    Best of luck in your endeavor

      Good starting points, Anjili. Cheers.
      This is a dream of mine.  Whether that can happen? I'm not sure, but, it stays in the back of my mind.

      Thanks ThreeKeys for your observation. Farming can be lucrative if taken seriously. I prefer growing my own foods. I also organically grow and sell fruits.

    If I had a farm, I would start out slow, sine there actually a lot of work involved with farming.

    I would start out with a small plot of land and raise a couple easy to grow crops.  Assuming I would not have the money for harvesters or tractors., I would need to work the plot by hand.  I would have to have some knowledge of how long certain crops will grow until they can be harvested and I would also know how often they should be watered and how long the crops will last after they have matured.

    I would also start out with some chickens and once again I would know how often they should be feed and how to take care of them.  After all, what is a farm without some fresh eggs.

    Once I get some experience in the above, then I could think about expanding my land, growing more crops and raising more animals.  I guess the best option, unless if the farm is miles away from any neighbors, is to ask neighbors for help and to help them in return.
