SPIN-Farming® makes agriculture accessible to anyone, anywhere! SPIN stands for Small Plot Intensive farming, and it fits in the front lawn, backyard, or back forty. These practical guides are based on the experiences of actual urban, suburban, and rural farms and designed to help your small-scale farm succeed.
SPIN-Farming® Basics contains step-by-step guides to the sub-acre production system that makes it possible to earn $50,000+ gross from a half-acre. It provides everything you need to optimize your operation: a business concept, farm design, investments, equipment, detailed day-to-day workflow, crop selection, and revenue benchmarks. While other books address growing, marketing and business, SPIN-Farming® Basics ties them together in an easy-to-understand, ready-to-implement system that keeps you focused on, and in control of, what matters to your success.
Here is what distinguishes the SPIN-Farming system from others:
SPIN shows you how to plant strategically based on what sells at market.
SPIN provides precise revenue targeting formulas to help your farm business generate a steady, predictable income.
SPIN outlines a five-day-a-week harvest protocol that helps you avoid the burn out of a "typical farmer" 90 hour work week.
SPIN combines intensive production with a direct marketing business model. The system is accessible to first generation farmers because it removes the two big barriers to entry into farming - land and capital - and it allows established farmers to downsize or diversify. Become one of hundreds of beginning, full-time, and part-time SPIN farmers who are building smart businesses on small acreages.
