Richard Wiswall has farmed in Vermont since 1981. The Organic Farmer's Business Handbook, A Complete Guide to Managing Finances, Crops, and Staff- and Making a Profit is Richard Wiswall's idea that contrary to popular belief, a good living can be made on an organic farm. What is required is farming smarter, not harder. He is one of many farmer faculty teaching the CSA Planning Course.
