Sepp,

Love that you make no apologies for making an income from your labors, imagination and abilities! From what I have read and heard about you, you attribute diversity in products and services as a big factor in your success. Excluding consulting, teaching, and farm tours, what product (for example: mushrooms, fish, produce, meats, herbs, medicinal plants, seeds, trees) attributes the largest profit margin for you? What product has surprised you the most by its returns?

Thank you for your inspiration, for sharing your knowledge, and for being a catalyst for change.

It is most important to be creative, find the things that people don't have. Watch nature and work with what it provides. Sepp has always been successful by not doing what other people are doing. He is always ahead of the game, once he neighbors start doing things the same as him he will change what he is doing. This always keeps things exciting and eliminated competition. Make the market, don't be used by it.

The biggest success is to have enough to live on, the rest is a present from nature.

Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
