Charlotte Smith heard some disturbing USDA statistics a few years ago:
“Three hundred farmers go out of business every week in the United States.
Eighty percent are are out of business by year two,
and only 2% of farmers are still around at year five.”
That’s something Charlotte is determined to change, so, with her new Profitable Mindset podcast, she’s sharing everything she learned from starting her own farm over a decade ago, and from helping thousands more farmers set up to be both profitable and sustainable.
The first five episodes cover the “25 Steps You Need to Start Your Farm Business.” In episodes 6 and 7 she dives into the nitty gritty of finding customers who value your product. Each podcast is about 20 minutes long and supported by links to free courses, tech tutorials, spreadsheets to help with budgeting, checklists and more.
I’ve enjoyed these podcasts and have learned a lot. Whether our a beginning farmer/rancher, or someone with experience interested in improving profitability, the Profitable Mindset podcasts will give you a lot to think about. I highly recommend heading over to Charlotte’s website to check them out.

Enjoy the inspiration!
