How much should you be making as an owner/operator of a small scale farm?

Of course, context is important - but where should the center of the bell curve lay?

Heath Emerson recently made an Instagram posing this question. In this episode, he talks about that post and also discusses some of the details of the practical in the field side of managing the expenses and production on a farm in this episode.

If you want to follow along with what Heath Emerson is doing you can find him at BroadForkAcres.com and on Instagram @broadforkacres.

What does running a small farm really look like from a business perspective?  How much money can you make, how much work is it, and what does your lifestyle look like?  This episode was inspired by an Instagram post put up by Taylor Mendell who talks to us about answering these questions.

Taylor runs a small roughly one-acre farm in Vermont with her husband, selling through a CSA and farmers' markets.

Is no-till farming actually worth it?

Is the amount of compost required worth the investment, and do the results actually stack up in comparison to tilling?

At the end of the day, where does no-till fit within the market-gardening realm?

In this episode, we put these questions to Jesse Frost of the No-Till podcast and Rough Draft Farmstead.
