I don't have a degree in agriculture, nor do I necessarily want one. I want someone to point me toward the right books and give some physical guidance while I try it out firsthand. You know how second generation farmers learned from their parents? I want to be able to either work on a farm in exchange for experience (wwoof) or in exchange for food. I don't mind the physical work or getting dirty. I do mind putting my kid in day care, so she'd either have to come with or we need to live closer to family who can trade me on this idea. The end goal would be the ability to sustain our family off whatever land we end up with.
I guess I'm looking for a farming guru. Are you it?
