Income Diversification For Your Farm (Using Resources You Already Have!)
13 Dec 2130 min 28 sec

Over the years, American farms have become increasingly specialized. That’s been good for productivity but not necessarily for protecting farm profitability. Being too dependent on just a handful of crops -- or worse, a handful of buyers — puts farming operations in a precarious spot. Remember the old saying about having all your eggs in one basket?  Sometimes the smart business move is to change up your offering to diversify your income stream. And if you can do it with resources, relationships, and knowledge you already have, all the better. Kelly Garrett discusses his budding direct-to-consumer meat enterprise. He explains his vision for retaining value that previously left the farm, how to exploit intentional congruencies, and how he once lost his shirt by getting too far out of his wheel house!
