How to make a high income from farm and market garden. Can you make a lot of money with a permaculture system? This depends on you and how you look at generating income, marketing and if you understand how to stack incomes from same farming activity. Now if you are not that creative and want to make a lot of money from a standard but scaled down large farm, you will struggle. Large farms are in the commodity business model, because they increase income from scaling up, not stacking up income with creativity and out of the box thinking.
I use the chicken egg operation as an example. The idea is simple. The standard egg seller can find ways to cut feed and labor cost. This is about it. A creative egg seller builds many income stream from the same activity of having the layer chickens on the farm.
Please keep in mind and to fully get a grasp on this one simple but hard for some to get point, income is income to the farmer. Egg money is not real money and eBook money is not fake money. Money is money, it is self defeating to try and separate income from an activity and say some counts and some does not because one is traditional farm income and another is not. The more creative a farmer and business owner is, the more potential the business owner and farm or garden can generate.

  1. All this really depends on the Customer. You can have to best product on the market, but if the Customer doesnt want it, then its not Profitable.
    Just thinking if you can not bring in customers then you cant sale it.
    This is my problem marketing.
    How do market what I want to sale.

    1. I think you might be missing the point of this one a little, product does not have to be the only or major part of the income from the”product” I will agree marketing is a big one for making money. If this is a issue, then start becoming a student of marketing. Podcasts and books, most will be junk, but some or gold, check out the book “purple cow” and, Cant think of title off the top of my head, but Google raving fans. don’t think that is the complete title, short book. A farm has to get into the heads of the customers and find ways that they can not wait for them to have you in their heads.
      The funny thing about sales is that “it” is not about the product, but the feelings the customer has about the product. That feeling comes from your marketing.
