Study organic farming and learn to farm animals or crops using organic, biodynamic, eco-farming techniques.
- First, it is a low input way of farming. You do not need to invest so much money in expensive chemicals and fertilisers. However, any declines in initial production are balanced against these reduced costs.
- Second, it is less likely to result in land degradation than many other production methods; hence the long-term cost of sustaining production is less.
- Thirdly, public demand for organic produce has markedly increased over recent years.
It is sustainable and can be quite profitable
Demand for organic produce has boomed over recent years and supermarkets from Australia to England now devote significant shelf space to organic produce, and organic certification schemes have emerged and flourished.
