We are born on earth and will die on earth; everything will be dig into the soil. But anyone has ever thought that how this land has nurtured mankind. From a baby birth to a young child and an adult this incredible land has took everyone into its arms. A farmer takes a seed like his baby, waters it, and feels every breath of it when it’s fully grown. There comes the time of the plant to return his father what he actually deserves. Is farming only bounded to growing of seeds, harvesting and selling it to the government with deduction of heavy taxes? I don’t think so. A Land can give lot more what we can actually imagine. The labor of farming is more of your determination and knowledge.
It’s time to take little of your veggies, fruits, pulses etc. into your basket, place it on your cart wheel which you can directly sell it to the consumers. You can think differently and go for the unusual or seasonal vegetables like red fleshed potatoes, canning tomatoes which are actually in demand and low in production. Market study for the production of vegetables and fruits is the integral part of farming as you know that “Little knowledge is dangerous”. Be updated with all the soil fertilizers and the demand in market which can be the golden key to enter the farmers market.
Little money is also stored in the eggs of the chickens. Breeding of hens and chickens is widely practiced in India as well as in different countries. There is lot of variety of eggs which is considered one of the healthy diets of a human being. Not only chickens, market demand ask for calves, dogs and pigs breeding as well. All these animals should be fed well, kept healthy and bred for the next step to earn money.
This idea of making money on farm can actually make your head spin. A real example of raising native bushes, grasses and wildflowers made the earning of over 600$ pound. A guy in California collected pollen seeds from the trees and sold it to one of the pharmaceutical company which made allergy medications out of it. There are many unusual stories which can give you a new spirit to take your future ahead. Selling of bushes for hedges, meats, beefs etc are some different examples to take in.
You must have heard about “Agritourism”, a vast word to explore. Now a day’s many people plan to take trips to the destinations which actually reflect the green and healthy part of our planet. Tourism near agricultural places is the best and rapidly increasing opportunity for farmers. People like to take the essence of huts and tents these days. The valley full of flowers with fresh vegetables to eat and tea adds spice to the trip. Rides of farm animals like ponies are an addition to it.
Farmers should take best advantage of the chance. Your Land is your mother which feeds you all over life, take good care of it.
