I would love to create a farm that could grow mainly different types of basil. It is a widely used herb and is very easy to grow. Also expand to have more hens, goats, and a larger vegetable garden.

More info: I have been farming at a large pepper farm in Candler called Smoking J’s Fiery Foods. There are only a few year round employees including myself and we have learned how to run the farm from start to finish. We plant the seeds, transplant, harvest, and then make various hot sauces from our peppers. The owner Joel has taught me so much about farming and has taken me under his wing.

Field crops, Herbs, Honey bees, Poultry (Broiler/Layer), Sheep/Goat (Dairy/Meat), Vegetable production. More info: Our goal is to expand our small homestead of chickens and vegetable farming.

Basil is an easy herb to grow and can be widely used.

Personal experience and production goals summary:

I have a vegetable and herb garden now on our homestead that is large enough for my fiancé and I to have vegetables throughout the year. I was able to have a farm stand with all that we grew this year too. I would love to create a farm that could grow mainly different types of basil. There is a large basil farm in South Carolina that grows many different types of basil. I would like to play with that idea and grow possibly 10 of the 15 different types of basil along with vegetables.
