So before I ever thought I wanted to do something more than stay at home with our kids, I was already in love with agriculture.
I had been showing animals at our local fair since I was 4 and I had a love for the animal side of it all.
I was never really interested in the plants (I know that‘s the most important part haha).
We didn’t have a lot of money to invest in animals, or all of the equipment we needed to care for and house them. So I started searching online for something in agriculture that I could do with little money and Flower Farming popped up and I thought hmmmmmm... I can do that.
I found a book call ”Cut Flower Garden” by Floret and I bought it, I didn’t know flower farming was a thing, I didn’t know who Floret was, they didn’t have a TV show then haha.
I looked at it once and I got super intimidated and put it down for about a year until I got desperate for something more.
So now that my little spiel is out of the way, I’ll share with you where I have gotten all my info. so far.
