Home Grown

Home Grown is a collection of articles written in-house by the staff at The Retiring Farmer™. Their expertise is heavily rooted in the business side of farming. As a result, the articles present in this section will focus primarily on just that. While we understand that there are multiple aspects to farming, this is typically the most actively avoided topic.

Thus it is our mission to bring you short, relevant articles meant to encourage Canadian Farmers to put the business back into farming.
