How to make money farming if you have a backyard
How to make money farming if you have a backyard to small acreage and are just starting out
Some people with small backyards do just fine making money farming, usually as a secondary stream of income, while others solicit other people’s yards as well, with a trade situation where the yard owner gets some produce for free, while the farmer can sell the rest.
Start by discovering the possibilities of what you could produce. As America grows more and more towards local food independence and an artisan renaissance, you could consider gourmet herbs and vegetables from your urban backyard, healing products made from your own herbs, gourmet mushrooms from a backyard shed, or any design-your-own “micro eco-farm” you create. Others who want to make money farming specialize in health food items like wheat grass or grow rare microgreens for restaurants or houseplants in a backyard greenhouse.
