What can you do on your land to add more income? What is value-added to you?

In this episode of the Thriving Farmer Podcast, Michael dives into why you need to attend this weekend’s Thriving Farmer Summit! It combines everything he’s passionate about: farmers loving what they do, while spending time with their families, and being justly compensated. 

In this episode, you’ll hear…

  • Why innovation in products, not more production, is the biggest opportunity for farmers to work less and make more
  • What the term “value-added” really means – and it’s not quite what you think
  • Joel Salatin’s bullish prediction about repercussions from the pandemic and why farmers need to cash in now
  • Why the numbers are in your favor when you decide to start owning your own processing, marketing, and distribution
  • Why companies like Driscoll, that we equate with strawberries, don’t grow a single one
  • How a wide variety of products are challenging to produce, but why the variety is needed to attract customers
  • How the market is changing, and why we need to adapt so we can thrive
  • The three areas that will hold any farm attempting value-added back and how to address them
  • Joel’s parting advice to those who are ready to get started, and his warning to those who don’t want to innovate
