Production

You don’t go to the grocery store without a list, so why would you grow your produce without planning it out? Knowing what you want to produce before you start growing will lead to your success. Once you get to know your land, you may get more creative with what you grow. But in the beginning, production planning, skill training and knowing what crops you want to grow will put you in the right direction.

Small farmers across the Fraser Valley grow many different kinds of crops, including fruits and vegetables, grains and pulses. These farmers grow crops like:

  • Lentils
  • Hops
  • Hazelnuts
  • Strawberries

Steps to great farm production

Follow four steps to a happy and full farm. Ask yourself these questions to map out your future farm’s production:

  1. Crops: What are you going to grow?
  2. Production planning: How and when will you grow your crops?
  3. Skill training: What skills do you or your employees need to have to grow your crops?
  4. Finding farm equipment: What equipment will you need to borrow, rent or buy to manage your farm
