It is now April 8 and we are another week into the Urban Farm season with Curtis. What's happened on the farm so far.
At this point in the season Curtis has prepared most of the growing beds on his various plots for the upcoming farm season and that includes switching a lot of his production methods over to more of no-till style. He has been spending a few hours each day on farm related activities. This season is just getting underway and this year he isn't doing it alone. He is doing it with the help of a new full-time employee. A move that Curtis hopes will allow him to work more on the business, not in the business.
This week we will be talking about his new employee and how the onboarding and training process is going. We will also talk about the financial impacts of hiring someone - when do the additional costs make sense?
In this episode we will talk a lot about pricing and how Curtis prices his products. He has found a pricing system that works and has kept his prices consistent since he started farming a few years ago.
