Advice for small market vegetable growers offered by UGA Extension

Growing vegetables as either a part-time or full-time enterprise can be an enjoyable and rewarding experience. That's according to a recent publication from the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension that indicates not only can you produce fresh food for your own table, you can provide supplemental income to your family’s budget.

While that may sound great, there are several considerations to bear in mind before you jump into this endeavor.

Items to consider before becoming a small market grower include:

  • time

  • commitment

  • capital

  • available resources

  • licensing

  • insurance

  • taxes

  • marketing.

This publication (downloadable here as a PDF file) is intended for general use audiences, including farmers and those considering entering small market vegetable production.
