My name is Casey and I’m the creator of Farmhacker.com.
Raised in a family of agriculturalists, growing up, I was always more interested in computers than farming. It wasn’t until later in life that I felt the call to go back to my family’s farming roots. It was then that I started investigating sustainable agriculture and permaculture which were completely different than the type of farming I was used to.
About that time, I decided to intern on a sustainable and organic farm for a year which changed my perspective on farming completely. I got to experience sustainable farming firsthand where farmers sold their goods directly to the consumer and made a profit doing so. It was also a way of farming that didn’t deplete the land but stewarded it well and left it in better condition than when it was acquired from the previous owners. And best of all, people were able to buy food that was healthy, free of chemicals, and good for them.
After that, I bought my own farm and begin putting into practice what I had learned. I created Farmhacker.com to teach you all about running a small farm and farming it sustainably.
Other farmers will also be contributing articles and tutorials so you can learn more about the creative farm hacks they are using on their own farms. Our ultimate goal is to help you become a better farmer.
