About this ebook

Inspired by growing fruit for nearly two centuries, Harvest for Profit is an important book for small farms. Ruth Linton is a 6th generation farmer who has developed her small acreage family farm to achieve consistent profitability while farming sustainably.

Fine tuning her growing practices on the family farm, Ruth Linton has focused on fruit that is beneficial for growers on 3 acres or less. With decades of experience in direct-to-consumer sales, she walks the growers through how to grow, how to harvest at the correct time, how to store and for how long, and then how to sell these unusual fruits for a good profit.

By minimizing the labor required to grow and maintain the fruit, the farmer can then improve profits with sales that benefit the farm and the customer. Harvest for Profit is ideal for young farmers just starting out or for established farmers who want to expand into more productive growing.

This is a practical guide to taking steps to increase the profit for the small farm.

Harvest for Profit’s goal: Grow more profit with fewer work hours.
