I have about 6 acres that is doing nothing. It once was pasture. I have played around for a couple years the idea of doing something with it. Christmas trees, blueberries, pumpkins, worm farming, renting it out, and many other things have been considered.
I'm not against hard work, or the patience needed in making something work. I see herb farms, farms that do one thing or another, but specialize in a product or two. I have seen farms that grow nothing but horseradish, to lavender, to cut flowers. And I understand that it may of taken years for them to develop a market and get to where they are today. And who knows, maybe they make no money.
I know many of these operations started somewhere, with many of them perhaps as a hobby and a passion and with some luck, they stumbled upon something good.
Right now, I'm just throwing out ideas and looking at all possibilities. I hate to think that 5 years from now I will look back and be sorry for not doing something.
Anyone have any wild ideas or niche market dreams that they want to share? Things you tried but did not work out for whatever reason? Anything worth looking into?
