    So it sounds like instead of being a farmer I need to open a hemp processing plant for Kentucky.

    Oh those square bales in 90 degree weather. I just like the memory and not the work .
    If he had one of the new balers that makes the 3 x 8 bales that can be moved with a tractor would be good.

    Tman6493, there’s an old saying, Farming can turn you into a millionaire,
    as long as you start off as a billionaire.

    There’s an interesting, eccentric farmer from Virginia named Joel Salatin. I haven’t read any of his books, but I’ve heard and read some of his interviews online.
    Here is a brief video I just found:

    Stuff like this is interesting to me, but anytime I’ve done the math, the numbers aren’t encouraging.

    Hard to get away from your trade.

    Which if your a fireman.... I’d think real hard about getting a fire alarm license or sprinkler license to inspect & test. Maybe even home inspections would be too out of the question.

    Businesses, schools, hotels, hospitals.. all have fire alarm systems ... and the larger inspection or repair companies charge a premium. Keep your prices for the service reasonable.... the word will get out and you will have more work than you want.

    So far that has not worked out well here. Company bought a old elementary school to turn it into a processing plant. So far it has been a year and they mow the grass around their sign a couple times a month. Have not seen a single vehicle parked in front of the building for that year. They sure talked a good game to those who run the county to buy that school for a couple $ with the promise of several job's.

    Farming is basically a tax loop hole for the wealthy and elite, good ol days of subsistence farms are over,

    That's right. I used to rent a place on a farm, and the house and apartment were in a type of cul-de-sac in the middle of the pasture. I'd come in after working to 4:00AM and try to go to sleep and some calf would get on one side of the fence around the house, and its momma would get on the other. They would start bawling at each other across the drive way. I'd have to get up, put on some warm clothes and herd the momma over to her stupid calf, by then I was wide awake. Then the dumb things would get loose and cause all kinds of problems. I'd hate to have to raise them to make a living.

    Have any of you ran a produce stand? I’ve thought about that just for fun and to meet people. I give most of my vegetables away any ways so I wouldn’t be concerned as much about a profit for that.
