You may or may not have an agricultural background.
Agricultural education may be an interest of yours if you want to learn more about food production and care of our natural resources.
Do you want to know how your food is produced? Maybe you want to produce your own and grow a business.
You may have many other questions about this topic.
You’ve come to the right place.
The first thing you want to do is to figure out your passion.
There are many roads to take when it comes to growing food. There’s so many ways to raise an animal or a crop.
Here are some options you may be interested in:
These methods are all extremely different. But, one thing makes them the same. They are methods used to produce food.
There is no right or wrong way to produce food. It depends on what you want.
The second thing to do is to educate yourself.
There are many misconceptions out in the world today about how food is produced. In reality, we live in a country that has the safest food supply in the entire world.
Regulations and labels are put in place to keep our food supply safe and sound.
Newly tested sciences and technologies continue to produce better varieties of seeds to improve yields and decrease extra inputs. A growing populations means more people to feed.
More people means more yields are needed to have enough.
But, if you are growing food for yourself and your family, there’s no need to worry about raising more. You just need to raise enough for you.
Again, it’s all about what YOU want and where your vision lies. There’s nothing wrong or scary with any method of growing food. It’s all one food and it all tastes nutritiously delicious.
Third: How about a agricultural backyard business?
You’ve been growing a crop or raising a species of animal for a while. You’re getting really good at it.
How about growing a little bit and selling the extra? It can totally happen.
A backyard business to support your family and farmstead sounds awesome. It is a lot of hard work to establish a business.
Many small businesses fail after a short period of time. But, I believe, if you have a passion for what you are doing and can clear the mountains that cross your path, you can find your way to a successful business.
Here are 23 backyard business ideas just for you.
Lastly: Educate the next generation.
This is important. There is a huge knowledge gap between the next generation of consumers knowing how their food is produced.
And they are wanting to know and learn.
Watch for some agricultural activities and printables for the kids to learn about agriculture. I will be sharing how I teach local youth about agriculture as well and what they are learning.
