BESPOKE CONSULTANCY FOR MARKET GARDENERS

 

YOU WANT TO BE A MARKET GARDENER. AMAZING! BUT WHERE TO BEGIN?!

Since we started running our market garden as a full-time business we have been delighted to be approached by others who are just starting out on their own venture or considering taking this path. This is very welcome because, very simply, a lot more market gardeners are needed! By nature these businesses are generally fairly small and sell their produce very locally so there is still plenty of room for new growers and so much scope for development.

 

We are excited to share that we are now offering bespoke Market Garden Consultancy for anyone who is considering, or already actively in the process of, setting up a market garden. Drawing from our own experience we can offer detailed and specific help to support you and give your new venture the best chance of success as both a business and as a sustainable long-term lifestyle.   

Making the transition from keen and experienced gardener to running a market garden as a business is a huge shift, and we find the main areas of concern for people getting started are as follows:

 

 

There is no right or wrong way to run a market garden but there are general guiding principles that apply, so even if your project is quite different to ours, the experience and knowledge we have gained along the way will still be relevant. 

Get in touch by email or phone for a friendly chat to see how we can help you.
