Ben Hartman: How to Make a Living on One Acre

Ben Hartman


Ben Hartman and family make a living on a small farm ... a very small farm. The entire operation comprises less than 1 acre in production
(they own 5 acres), with 9,000 square feet under four greenhouses. The farm is in Goshen, Indiana, midway between Detroit and Chicago.
Through efficient production management, very deliberate crop selection, and effective marketing, they are making a living on this small
plot of land, selling to CSA customers as well as restaurants and at a farmers’ market. He’ll share his blueprint for success in this session.
