Curtis Stone, founder of Green City Acres, grosses $80,000 to $100,000 per year working 3 seasons out of the year, while taking winters off. The most amazing part of this, is that he farms on only about 1/3 of an acre.
Curtis grows 15 different crops and sells his produces to medium to high end restaurants and once a week he sells at the local farmers market. Oh yeah, one more thing…He doesn’t own the land! It’s borrowed land where he worked a deal with the landowner.
He’s also talking about being about to produce $100,000 per half acre. That’s $200,000 per acre in revenue.
Now, doing the math, one could scale this up to a 10 acre farm, and if the laws of diminishing returns doesn’t kick in too fast, then you should be able to produce up to $2 Million dollars on a small 10 acre farm.
