A vegetable farmer can work on a small or a large farm. Each presents different day-to-day challenges and duties. However, a Vegetable Farmer’s basic responsibilities are ultimately the same, no matter how big (or small) the farm is. Vegetable Farmers plant, harvest, and sell vegetables of all kinds.
ATTENTION TO THE SMALLEST DETAILS
Small farms are those you find selling at local outdoor markets. They’re often owned by one family, and have a workforce you can count on both hands. You don’t make as much money as a bigger farm (because you can’t grow as much), but you have a lot more control over things. You can decide not to use pesticides, for example, or change crop options based on your customer’s whims. This is because you work with a smaller number of plants, and get to know your customers better. Unlike big farms, you can’t ship your vegetables far away, so the people you deal with are limited to how far you can drive your peas or carrots before they start to mold.
