Small crops

Asked June 3, 2017, 9:52 AM EDT

We have approximately 2 acres of land that we would like to use for small crops. What would be a good crop that we could start and also be profitable. We are fairly new to the area and reside in Austin.

Thank you for your question. I guess I would start with what you like. Profitability on 2 acres is possible but it will be with a highly specialized crop, and an intensive marketing plan. Your crop needs to be your passion. I'll be glad to come out some time and visit with you, see your site, and perhaps offer some suggestions. Feel free to call the office and we'll schedule a time. 270-651-3818.
