When you are setting up a farm, the first thing you need to do is come up with a cute name and a logo.
The first thing you need to do is find the earth to farm, but that’s if you already know how to farm. Since, I did not, I spent about a year learning about organic farming. This included taking classes, having lots of conversations with experienced farmers, and getting my hands dirty.
Then, I found a farm. I first started by renting a few acres from a friend, and once Farm Hearts grew, I bought my own plot. Next, I needed staff, which were actually easy to find.
It took about a full year for Farm Hearts to feel like a real farm, and sometimes I am not sure it is even that. But I love this little business and I am committed to helping it grow and being what I know that it can!
