GFP FC 21Inspired to start up your own food or gardening business? Check out my book, Gardening For Profit (£9.99, Green Books) – also available in good book shops, and via Amazon (eBook also available).

More and more of us are discovering the rewards of growing our own food – and there’s plenty of advice to be found on gardening and growing veg. But what about producing larger quantities to sell? And even trying to make a living from this amazing and essential thing?

  • finding land
  • sourcing funding
  • working out what equipment you’ll need (and how much to budget for)
  • managing your accounts – and doing the tax and legal paperwork
