085 - Quitting A Job I Love for A Life That I Love. The Unromantic Journey Into Farm Life with Chad Stamps.
This is the very real story of Chad Stamps and his unromantic journey into farming.
It's the reality of life that makes this story unromantic, versus the common romantic notions that you hear when someone speaks about going into farming. Long hours, driving, and hard work are par for the course. Entry into farming is often a grind. But it is that grind that has become some people's destiny.
People like Chad.
Chad has gone from no farming experience to now full time farmer. He looked for land for 6 years and started with just 4 feeder pigs and the rest is history. As Chad says in this episode, "The perfect time will never come. Start before you are ready. If you wait, you'll never get there."
And, oh yeah... This episode was recorded 4 days after Chad quit his job to farm full time. This is as real as it gets.
