Small farming – Project ideas

Q: I’m on the heart transplant list at Emory – bet you haven’t had too many of us contact you!. When I get out and heal up, I want to do some small farming: animals, orchard, vegetables, etc. on 100 acres I own. Got any references for a project this?

A: To the contrary, my neighbor Missy is a seven year transplant survivor and she regularly asks me gardening questions – good luck to you! The best resource for you is the fine organization Georgia Organics, They sponsor regular education sessions for small farmers, host The Growers Exchange blog and publish a monthly e-newsletter.
