With the increased interest in permaculture, market gardening and people going back to the land to start a homestead or a small farm, I’ve decided to share my experience of how my family and I are making a living from a small-scale market garden in the eastern country side of France.

In the book “Transition to Farming: How To Quit Your Job, Start a Farm, and Make a Living From a Small-Scale Market Garden in 7 Steps” I go over the exact steps we’ve taken that allows my family and I to live full time from the farm.


Summary

Transition to Farming is a book that mainly focuses on helping new, beginning and aspiring farmers transition from their current jobs and lifestyle, into starting a successful small farm.

The book covers:
• 7 steps that show you how you can start a profitable small farm (whether you want to transition into farming, dive right in, or make a side income from your gardening hobby)
• The #1 way we use to identify exactly what crops we have to grow and in what quantities in order to reach our financial goal.
• The tools, equipment and infrastructure we used in our first year that allowed us to get started efficiently, without braking the bank.
• How to design a small farm for efficiency, practicality and profitability.
• The step-by-step of how we plan our production each year.
• How to market and sell your crops for the first time (and virtually ensure ongoing sales)
• And more…


Who is this book for ?

This book is aimed to help beginners get started in their farming journey. Whether you want to transition from your current job into starting a small farm, or want to make a little side income (or more) from your gardening hobby or your homestead. The principles in this book are universal and thus relevant whether you live in the States, Europe, Australia or anywhere else on this planet.

You can download a free copy of the kindle version currently on Amazon :


Transition to Farming : How To Quit Your Job, Start a Farm, and Make a Good Living From  a Small-Scale Market Garden in 7 Steps

Enjoy, and let me know what you think !

I , for me anyhow, kindle and cloud things are just to complicated and tedious to use, I rather pay for a pdf or hard copy.  I am very interested in  the book, what I could see and read of it sounds very good and an organized approach.  I guess I have had a few bad experiences downloading different apps and then having computer problems and having to spend time to get my computer back to the way I like it.  I just do not understand why all these apps are just not less complicated.

I am getting up the nerve to try this 'cloud' thing, i have to go that route for the app to read this as i am using the chrome operating system.  the system is great for the net, i have never gotten a virus and but  printing is hard and some  things  do not work well with the chrome os,  but usually not a problem.

Hi Paul, sorry to hear from your previous experiences using these types of software. Some of these applications and software can indeed take some time to get the hang of, and is not always as clear as just pressing a button.

As of now, I'm converting the book into a pdf file which is going to take a little bit of time since the whole layout of the book will be changed once converted. So I'll have to do it manually page by page if I want it to look at least a bit decent.

I'll let you know once it's ready. In the meantime I hope you'll be able to use the Chrome OS to read the book.

Best regards, Moreno
