AZGardener, as I'm sure you know, a "farm" need not cover vast acreage to be successful. My property is just four acres, of which only about 1/4 acre is garden/greenhouse. On that I can grow and sell all that I can handle by myself, and as I learn and collect labor-saving equipment and practices, I am able to produce more, and more variety, each year. I sell only at the local farmer's market, but I cover pretty much the gamut as far as veggies are concerned. I am not making a full living from my produce, and don't really intend to; I just expect to supplement my retirement, which starts in about two months (can't wait!).
