Raise your hand if you’ve ever thought of leaving everything behind and starting a farm. Yup, I’ve been there too.
Hi, my name is Marvin and Farm Sun Seed is the product of the new, fantastic life that my family and I lead in the countryside.
When we first thought of moving out of the city, the first question that came to my mind was: is it even possible?
The second question was: where do we even start?
In a way, you could say that Farm Sun Seed is here to provide that answer, in the hope to help some of you avoid the mistakes we made when I first started.
The story of Farm Sun Seed
As technologies progress day by day and the world changes faster and faster, many people are more and more interested in growing their own food. As the market offer gets wider, we start to feel like we’re losing control over what we put on our table.
The idea of controlling the production process from the beginning is not only appealing but gives you an unmatched sense of safety about what goes into your body and that of your children and loved ones.
With this idea in mind, my loving wife and I started our own little farm in 2019, with nothing more than a rough idea of what we were going to do and the help of many, many online tutorials.
After two years, we started to help a couple of friends set up their own farm and fix the most common problems any beginner farmer has. That’s when we realized we really got the gist of it, and that maybe we could help other people as well.
My wife Lora started keeping a farming journal when we first bought our land. She always found it important to keep track of everything that happened during our journey, and during the lockdown, I started my own as well.
The more I documented what happened on the farm, the more I felt like there were more than a few pieces of good advice that were wasted in my little notebook, where no one outside of my family could read it.
So I realized it was time to go digital.
However, I didn’t want to start just another farming blog with day-to-day stories. I wanted to build an online space where we could give real, useful tips from tangible experience.
Fast-forward to 2022, Farm Sun Seed is born.
Who we are
At the very core, most of what you find on Farm Sun Seed comes from the real-life experiences of Lora and me.
Along the way, we were lucky enough to meet a few other self-made farmers and had the pleasure to exchange stories and tips with people who often had a few more years of farming experience on their shoulders than we had.
Some of these people have become close friends over the years, and you will see their precious contributions on these pages.
