This is exactly what I'm trying to do now. I live with almost zero cost (compared to most people) and have been blessed with my parents allowing me to farm their ten acres of land. This isn't a lot of land by any means; but it is enough to produce food for my family, my friends, and myself. I'm working towards being able to produce more, longer to be able to sell food much cheaper than anyone I've seen. My idea is that I currently live off of $400 a month. If I make more than that selling produce then I'm making a profit. I would like to still be able to buy more land so I would need much more than that to be able to save up enough. I believe a lot of the issues is that people aren't getting into natural farming young enough. Starting young, networking, and refusing to use banks is key to producing cheap food. Not everyone would be able to do this of course; butsomecan. If some can then yes, it is possible.
