Farm Business Ideas – Cashing in on the Organic Boom

39

With people becoming increasingly concerned about the environment and their own health, the sale of organic products is booming. Small and large farms alike are in a unique position to cash in on this booming industry. Whether you grow your own vegetables in your garden or have acres of farmland, there are a few farm  business   ideas  that will help you to cash in on this boom.

One option is to sell your produce at a farmer’s market. Many cities already have these types of markets and are seeing them double or triple in size as more people become interested. Smaller towns who’ve never had this option are seeing them pop up all over the place. It is usually very cheap to rent a table at these local farmer’s market and a great way to gain access to a ton of local customers.

Another option is to make products from the produce you are growing organically. For example, if you grow cucumbers you could consider pickling them into pickles. You can then can them and market them on the internet. There are many websites that will allow you to list this type of item for free, and that can lead to huge sales.

You can also try partnering with a local store on a consignment basis. You can give your products to them for no upfront fee, and as they sell they’ll funnel a portion of the profits on to you. This is a great option because you have a very minimal amount of actual selling and marketing to do.

Any of these farm  business   ideas  can work for farms, big and small alike. The key is to grow quality produce and find a way to get it the masses.
