Ep 46: The Market Farmer Life - with Conor Crickmore of Neversink Farm

Bytable Podcast - Know Better Live Best

Listen as Conor Crickmore tells us about his journey from IT to farming, tips for those who want to grow their own food, and the importance of being connected with your food system. Bio: Conor left the city, moved to the country and started what would later become a world class farm from nothing and with no experience. He left a IT job in a cubicle to create a homestead on a river where he could catch and grow his dinner. It did not happen quickly as it was very hard those first couple of years for Conor and his wife Kate. Conor and Kate were driven by finding a connection to nature and their food and to make a better life for themselves and their two kids born on the farm. What they ultimately created was one of the most successful small scale vegetable farms in the world. After a decade of building their farmstead, they now teach others their high production, low till farming methods. Conor found that the current landscape of tools did not work well within his style of farming and thus he became a designer and manufacturer of farm tools. Other farmers agreed, and the tool company, Neversink Farm Tools, was born. Conor and his family now wish to share their farm with the community through dinners in their newly renovated barn and through videos of farm life they create. They hope to inspire others to either make the leap themselves to a country life or at least to eat great food in a beautiful location with family and friends.

The Five Things That Made My Farm More Profitable and More Enjoyable with Farmer Conor Crickmore of Neversink Farm (FSFS93)

Farm Small Farm Smart

Today it's Part Two of the series with Conor. As you heard last week, along with his wife Kate, Conor Crickmore is grossing over $350k per year at Neversink Farm in upstate NY. A lot of money for a very small farm, and the amazing thing is, they still think there's room to grow. In today's episode we'll focus more on production as Conor gets into the why and how, of how future growth is possible for Neversink. He'll talk about some of the challenges that he sees many struggling farms facing, and how in many ways the answer to those problems is simplification and standardization. Two base principles that run through everything that they do on the farm. Conor will also discuss in depth the five things that have made their farm as profitable as it is, while simultaneously making their quality of life better. And we not just talking gear here, or buy this or that. Again, it's base principles that have really made Neversink successful, and those base principles are ones that you could apply on your farm today. With that, let's get into it with Conor Crickmore of Neversink Farm. Learn more at www.permaculturevoices.com/farmsmallfarmsmart Support the show at www.permaculturevoices.com/support
