5 Good Reasons to Start Farming

As January kicked off, we met some people who were interested to start a new hobby. How happy we are that some actually are interested to get into farming! We’re not talking about having a massive land and turn it into a farm. You could do urban farming in your garden or the balcony of your apartment to start with. For those of you who have the same intention, we have listed 5 good reasons to start farming in 2017.
