Make no mistake about it, if you are farming a wilderness area, it can definitely be quite a logistical and financial challenge.
You have to understand that these places are not exactly free. Even if you paid only a hundred thousand or a couple of hundred thousand dollars for your property, you can still lose money.
That’s right. Even if you paid cents on the dollar on basically virgin territory, you can lose money because if you don’t do anything with the land and if you don’t improve it in any significant way, it’s not going to make you money.
That’s a basic fact. You don’t need to be a genius or a rocket scientist to figure this out. This pretty much speaks for itself.
So how do you make your wild farm profitable? This is the main challenge of people who are into wild farming.
I know it’s kind of trendy right now. A lot of people are getting into it, but boy, are these people getting in over their heads.
It is no surprise that the statistic of more and more millennials getting into wild farming or semi basic farming may be at record breaking levels. But it’s also true that a lot of them are dropping out almost as immediately as they dropped in. And it all boils down to proper planning.
You see, Mother Nature is not going to treat you with kid gloves. In fact, it’s going to slap you around, try to drag you down and hold you back.
That’s how loving and accommodating Mother Nature is. And the sooner you can get that idea in your head and prepare for it accordingly, the better off you would be.
However, if you go into this thinking that somehow, some way, Mother Nature owes you a favor and life has to be fair, boy, are you going to be in for a surprise.
Eventually, you will quickly discover that getting beat down all day, every day, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, is going to get old.
So you quit. You think that it’s a big mistake. You point the finger and you blame other people instead of yourself.
Well, you could have escaped all this unnecessary drama by being properly equipped.
For example, your wild farm needs lodging. Your lodging needs warm flowing water. Pretty basic. Pretty simple, right?
Well, plan accordingly. Invest in the best tankless water heaters.
They don’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. You just need to know how they’re set up. You just need to know the right models to buy, and you’re good to go.
If you keep solving these problems in a kind of level headed and practical manner, you will make more money. That’s the name of the game.
A little bit of preparation and the right mental attitude prepares you for greater and greater levels of success. It’s not easy, but life can definitely be fun.
