Tips and Tools: If I knew then what I know now…. –Christine Hagen, Hagen Homestead @ SOGALO16 2016-02-06


Arbor We started market farming by accident. Some good friends inquired if we ever sold any of our extra vegetables? Had not thought about that—we sold them some purple onions, lettuce, and butternut squash that day. Eight years later they are still good friends and they are still buying our farm goods along with other friends and acquaintances. But as the saying goes: “If I knew then what I know now….” So let’s spend some time together learning some tips and tools of market farming and gardening in general.

Christine Hagen will speak about her family’s CSA at South Georgia Growing Local 2014:

We started out going to a weekly organic farmer’s market over in Thomasville but transitioned to a CSA after 2 years. We will explain why and show you how our gardens have taken shape over these past few years. We are still a small operation after 4 years choosing to grow our business slowly. However, we have learned a great deal during these growing years. Plus we have gleaned much from other folks which we will be implementing over the next few years. We are grooming the farm as a business venture for our son, who does most of the labor.
