Farm Small Farm Smart Daily

Is there a place for permaculture principles in a bio-intensive approach to successful ( and profitable) small-scale vegetable production?

For more than a decade Jean-Martin and his wife have been making a living farming on 1.5 acres of land. Last year they sold for more than $140 000 in sales (with a profit margin of around 45 %) by selling freshly harvested vegetables trough their 140 member CSA and seasonal market stands.

The secret of their success resides in the low-tech, high-yield methods of production they have developed at les Jardins de la Grelinette.

This talk was presented live at PV2 in March 2015.
