COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF 13 FARM ENTERPRISES

A large part of the data in the book comes from Ridgedale Farm, which Richard co-owns and co-manages with his wife Yohanna and an ever-changing constellation of core team members, interns and volunteers. The farm is only 10,6 hectares and located at 59N in rural Sweden, yet grosses a quarter of a million Euros in a short 6 month season (and was profitable from year one).
