Mike, thank you for taking the time to write this. The information and references here are indispensable.

I would allow the cuttings to root for at least an entire season. In fact, I anticipate allowing trees to grow for a couple seasons, but I haven't figured all of that out yet. I suppose I'm wondering what I could grow within that first year that could be sold within that same season, as I wait for a consistent return on bare root stock.

Hi folks,

I'm located in Ontario and am planning a 1 acre permaculture nursery. I'll be growing mostly trees from cuttings intensively planted in permanent raised beds for sale at market and online. We've begun erecting a 30'×52' high tunnel as well.

Can a nursery like this profit in year 1? What can I do to earn a living from my farm in the first year without taking space away from the nursery?

We do sell eggs from 200 hens, but profit from that enterprise is not impressive as of yet.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jenni,

I haven't read your book but I'm certainly interested. I'm currently farming in Eastern Ontario.
