Compact Farms

Unique Business Model

I didn’t grow up on a farm….though my grandparents were farmers. I did visit the farm often and always liked the idyllic farm life (not easy however).

A recent book – “Compact Farms-15 Proven Plans for Market Farms on 5 Acres or Less” explains in detail how these market farms are successful businesses. Here are some keys to a farms success (p.97).

  • Be professional
  • High emphasis on quality and quality control
  • Maintain good relationship with employees and customers
  • Focus on high value products
  • Understand their markets and concentrate on those that are profitable
  • Control expenses and capital investments

These keys apply not only to market farms but to any successful business….and the compelling story is a satisfying business on 5 acres or less.
