Niche Marketing Versus Farming

niche marketing versus farming special research report Photo by
Farmers in the rural-urban fringe (RUF) face unique challenges. Spillovers from the urban region and competition for land increase the costs of farming relative to farming farther removed. Yet, there is greater potential for off-farm employment and niche marketing of farm products, providing more income options to RUF farmers.

From a list of 102 direct marketing and organic farmers, we managed to ...

Content Farms & The Death of Remarkable Content
In his post, Pete wins everyone’s heart calling out the Internet Content Syndication Council (Really? That exists?), which has been circulating a ridiculous document entitled council to counter Web content generators growing clout (PDF).

Cross Country: Farm Technology Days is a chance to assess Wisconsin's dairy ...
The first two days, Tuesday and Wednesday, of the 2010 edition of Wisconsin Farm Technology Days were blessed with bright sun and warm — but livable — temperatures and thousands of visitors made their way to the farm fields of the Peterson family farm just outside River Falls in Pierce County. But, as has happened before — the 2008 show in Brown County being the most recent — nature in the form of heavy rains wiped out the third (and final) day of Wisconsin's biggest outdoor agricultural show. It is indeed unfortunate that the efforts of so many people in Pierce County who worked for three years preparing for this event ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Farmers markets are driven by quality
The American farmer is the most productive producer in the world; today one farmer feeds 129 people, compared to 1960 where one farmer fed 60 people. When given a task and weather allowing (God willing) the farmer is the best at producing what ever is needed.

Add to that the government’s farm policy as the underlying blueprint to follow, the farmer is able to successfully operate within the criteria set forth.

Now I know that this issue does not affect all of you, because some of you have sites with very high-paying keywords or you can offset low RPC's with the high volume of traffic your site receives. My sites are regional in nature with a fairly focused subject matter, which used to be okay in terms of my RPC. But, many of us web ...
