You Can Farm: The Entrepreneur's Guide to Start & Succeed in a Farming Enterprise

You Can Farm: The Entrepreneur's Guide to Start & Succeed in a Farming Enterprise

Have you ever desired, deep within your soul, to make a comfortable full-time living from a farming enterprise? Too often people dare not even vocalize this desire because it seems absurd. It's like thinking the unthinkable.
After all, the farm population is dwindling. It takes too much capital to start. The pay is too low. The working conditions are dusty, smelly and noisy: not the place to raise a family. This is all true, and more, for most farmers.
But for farm entrepreneurs, the opportunities for a farm family business have never been greater. The aging farm population is creating cavernous niches begging to be filled by creative visionaries who will go in dynamic new directions. As the industrial agriculture complex crumbles and our culture clambers for clean food, the countryside beckons anew with profitable farming opportunities.
While this book can be helpful to all farmers, it targets the wannabes, the folks who actually entertain notions of living, loving and learning on a piece of land. Anyone willing to dance with such a dream should be able to assess its assets and liabilities; its fantasies and realities. "Is it really possible for me?" is the burning question this book addresses.

Atop what was once Molly's Cafe in New Castle, Colorado, I find the weather vane no longer flying west. Instead, she points her long beak and fervent intentions upward...as do I.

Molly's Cafe was my first official destination when arriving in Colorado, from New Orleans, 30 years ago. Molly Yeoman and her husband, Richard, then an elderly Native American couple, had been my father's dear friends. They ran the cafe, with boarding house upstairs, where he stayed when he traveled to Colorado to hunt deer.

I remember, as a girl, my sad thoughts as he departed every year. "What would he have for Thanksgiving dinner?" Knowing full well it would not be the fattened turkey, pumpkin pie, and sweet southern style iced tea that graced our hospitable dining table. "Would he miss us while he suffered over his camp fire, eating canned beans?"

Years later, my father's annual trips to the paradise known only as "Colorado", and his stories of wilderness adventure, began to turn my heart. I envied and romanticized his campfire beans, anxiously awaiting his return, knowing his red and black flannel shirt would still carry the faint scent of a smoky, star filled night before the flames.

Molly and Richard have long passed, their farm against the river replaced by the condo bondage of urban blight. Molly's Cafe is an art studio, the door painted purple, and the weather vane, whose westward direction has held for decades, now points the wind and me in another direction.

Bench Monday - Magic in the Air

Bench Monday - Magic in the Air

The closer we get to Christmas, the more in the spirit I get. Which is a change for me. Me who has hated Christmas for years and years. That in itself is a miracle. Is my shopping done? Not even close. Am I worried? Not really. I'm a procrastinator. I work best under pressure.

I'm not a fan of shopping this time of year. I usually get pissed off more than once and I hate that feeling. This year I have been very proactive in preventing that from happening. I take everything in stride and try not to take anything personal. I am always one to think "If it were me, what would I think? How would I feel?" So when someone cuts in line, that's okay, I figure for the most part it's done inadvertently and probably I have done it myself to someone else. I keep a smiling face and try to keep that grouchy attitude at bay.

I am however dreading finishing up Christmas shopping with a 2.5 year old that insists it's time to be going through his terrible 3's. A never ending battle of wills. I'm pretty darn stubborn, but I think this kid puts me to shame! I have no desire to shop with a whinny, screaming, crying kid...but it has to get done!
