Abstract:

From the Blurb: Pick-your-own (PYO) farms are operating successfully throughout the nation because they allow customers to make important savings while buying absolutely fresh fruits and vegetables. Moreover, a trip to the farm can be both a pleasant family outing and a valuable educational experience. This book tells you how to make money off a small acreage with a pick-your-own operation. It tells you which crops are the proven money-makers; how much to plant of each; how to estimate your potential market; what your expenses will be; the equipment, supplies, and other resources that you will need; how to hire good personnel; how to advertise to attract customers when crops are ripe; and how to manage customers when they are on your property. Most important, the authors share tips on how to grow the sixteen proven moneymaker crops in a PYO operation. Comparatively few farmers are taking advantage of these opportunities. Now is the time to capture the market in your community. This book will be interesting and profitable for you whether you are an experienced farmer or an amateur.
