Starting Your Dream Farm (Agri Tip No. 6)

(This is one piece of advice for people interested in farming for money, whether one is a neophyte or one who has been farming for a long time. We will post these tips every now and then so keep on logging to this site.)


GROW WHAT YOU CAN SELL IN YOUR OWN TOWN!


IN these times when transport of your harvest is very costly, consider growing something that ย you can sell right in your own hometown or province. You will not only save on bringing your product to market, your produce will be more fresh when they reach your buyers.


Also, when the market is near your farm, you can grow crops that don’t have a long shelf life but with excellent eating quality. You know, there are certain crops that taste very good but many farmers don’t like to grow them because they have poor transport quality and short shelf life. One example is the native tomato in the Ilocos which is very juicy with a desirable acidity. It is something many consumers (especially Ilocanos) are looking for but it is usually not available in the traditional markets.ย 


The trick in order to succeed is to estimate the volume that the local market could absorb and don’t overproduce. You can stagger your production, if that is possible, so that you can have a continuous cash flow.
