Author(s): Charles Walters
Charles Walters, founder of Acres U.S.A., has been promoting sustainable agriculture while calling attention to the pitfalls and tragedies of the "bigger is better" mentality that has gripped conventional farming for the past 50 years. It is precisely this metality that has led to the unprecedented growth of the corporate farm while insuring the loss of America's family farms.
This book is the culmination of Walters’ lifetime of experience, written in his honest, straight-ahead style, outlining how the small farmer-entrepreneur can find his way to a profitable bottom line. The book provides how-to information on each step from planning to implementation of business practices for the eco-friendly farm and includes examples of people who are making a living, and a profit, by demanding a fair price for their labor.
A Farmer's Guide to the Bottom Line provides the information farmers need to create a useful business plan, protect the farm investment and resources, and take solid steps toward establishing a profitable bottom line.
