  • Written by News Company

A career in farming can be incredibly lucrative, if you have the right tools and know-how. Here's how to become a farmer that makes big profits in 5 steps.

 



Australia's farm industry makes up about 3% of the country's GDP. The agricultural field is a vibrant and vital part of the nation. Do you want to become part of this important sector?

Whether to grow cattle feed or fruits and vegetables for human consumptions, the opportunities in farming are endless and diverse.

If you want to know how to become a farmer, but don't know where to start, you are in luck. Keep reading below for five tips to get you on the right path!

1. Learn and Do Your Research

Maybe you come from a family of farmers and already have a good amount of knowledge about farming. But maybe not.

If farming is a newer world for you, there are farming courses available to get you started. These will run through how to perform certain tasks, but also give insight into the business component of running a successful farm.

You also have the option of becoming certified in Agricultural Studies through various universities. There are even online options to suit busy schedules.


2. Select Your Niche

Do you want to be a commercial farm or a smaller, family farm? Will you focus on one or two crops or be a dairy farm? These are questions to answer early on in the process of becoming a farmer.

Consider the future outlook for whatever you are interested in. For example, produce growers will always be in high demand.


3. How to Become a Farmer: Get Practical Experience

Accept that there is a steep learning curve in being a farmer. As such, it is crucial to spend time working on someone else's farm before striking out on your own.

This real experience will give you the skills and knowledge set to handle common issues farmers see every day. It will also get you used to the fact that you likely won't be putting in just 8-hour work days.

Working alongside prosperous farmers will also let you keep up to date on current trends or technological advances. Have you heard of vertical farming? It's a way to maintain high volumes of crops, but on a smaller area of land!


4. Find Your Location

Understand that unless you already live in an open area properly zoned for farming, you will likely need to relocate. If you are in an urban area, start planning for a big move. Selling your home will be at the top of your list.

Let your selected area drive your final destination. Consider soil condition and climate. Take time with this part of the process. A miscalculation here could spell disaster for farming future.


5. Be Healthy and Fit

One final step towards becoming a successful farmer is to remain healthy and fit. There are many physical tasks you will be required to do regularly as a farmer.

Learn how to properly do each and every task to stay safe and limit accidents. Remember to also eat nutritious food and stay well hydrated.


Watch Your Farm Prosper

With these five tips, you now know how to become a farmer. While the journey will likely not be easy, it will be a rewarding one in the end.
