Welcome to the Back 40 Forums MARKET FARMING & GARDENING BOARDS

Welcome to our gathering place specifically for folks who produce the food we eat.  As a market farmer for over 10 years and as the Director of the Resilience Research Farm in Missouri I know what it takes to be a success in this field.  Anything is up for discussion here:  Seed starting, grow out, seed saving, heirloom vs. hybrids varieties, distribution, processing marketing, packaging, and sales on & off the farm, including those to restaurants, at farmer's markets and direct to consumers.  So, let's get moving with some relevant discussions.   This is for growers at all experience levels from wannabee to newbie and those faster farmer and gardener's with year of experience under their belts, so don't be shy!
