Will the course be applicable to my region?
While local adaptations certainly must always be made, the course is applicable to any farm anywhere. We currently have active course members all over the world, including tropical zones on multiple continents. The course goes in depth on managing systems, farming efficiently, soil, hoop house design, propagation techniques, putting up fences, transplanting, creating a lease, vegetable wash and storage, marketing, trellising, climate controls, irrigation, maximizing profit, etc. etc. all of which can be applied anywhere. Most of farming has little to do with your location. For example, you may water more or less, but your watering infrastructure and systems for getting things irrigated remains the same regardless of where you are. This is true for most aspects of farming.
Is this for Experienced Growers?
We currently have active course members all over the world and in very diverse stages of developing their farms, from beginners to very experienced. The course is built to go into great depth about every system that Conor has put into place to run an efficient and profitable farm. Conor covers everything from how he grows specific vegetables to how he manages employees and organizes work spaces. He includes organizational documents that he uses such as employee checklists and employee contracts. He discusses not only how his farm works now, but also how he started small and grew from there. The course is all about managing systems, farming efficiently, and maximizing profit. It is many hours of material (> 40 hours), and our most successful students are those who loyally engage the content and begin immediately implementing it at whatever scale they are able to at the time.
Some more experienced members actually learn that they have to unlearn much of what they've been doing and that they could have saved a lot of money if they had done it differently from the beginning.
Is this for Beginners?
While the course certainly covers many things that you will not be able to implement immediately, it will give you a bigger picture of where you are going and what you are working toward. It can serve as a sort of road-map for your farm, including covering tons of things that are immediately applicable (choosing and prepping land, soil improvements, organizational systems, weeds, pests and disease, and tons more) as well as more advanced things that you will need to be planning toward. This will help you avoid mistakes and keep you from losing money having to rework things that were not done right from the start. Since the course is a lifetime membership, you will be able to re-watch and reference the material whenever needed over the years to come.
Do you have a Payment Plan?
