Bootstrap Farmer Radio is a podcast discussing how to break into the modern business of agriculture on a bootstrap budget & education. The internet is making more connections and distributing knowledge in a way that makes it accessible for us all. Our focus isn't mega-greenhouses with million dollar machinery, instead, we talk about low-cost, versatile and adaptable green businesses that can sustain a family through the best and worst of times. We find the small farmers running profitable farm businesses and find out their keys to success.
