On today's show we are going back into the archives to look at an off-farm business that generates revenue at fairs and festivals. This is a great tie-in to tomorrow's ag business episode.
Mark Hufford has the fascinating business of doing educational displays and talks about the use of oxen in the frontier and colonial times. Below are the original show notes from his first episode with us.
Today we are heading to Indiana to talk with a 6th generation farmer about how he and his wife changed their farming model to something that was more palatable and profitable for them.
Mark Hufford of Double M Farms will be joining us and talking all about their direct marketing model for beef as well as pork. It is a bit different than what I do, and quite possibly a bit better. He was also be discussing one of his forms of off-farm income, raising oxen and taking them to exhibits and shows in their region.
Mark has a lot of great advice for us in this episode and a great story. He and his wife's pursuits have taken them all over the country to ultimately wind up back in Indiana and trying to figure out a way to make it in farming. Today they are well on their way, and he will share that with us here today.
