Les Jardins de la Grelinette, Canada is a highly successful micro-farm. Farmer Jean-Martin Fortier has shared the tools and techniques used on the farm in his film, The Market Gardener’s Toolkit.
In this film of the book, we see how JM Fortier’s micro-farm manages to generate $150,000 in sales annually without the use of a tractor or heavy machinery. Filmed over an entire growing season, The Market Gardener’s Toolkit offers an unprecedented insight into the daily operations of the farm, from seeding to transplanting, from weeding to harvesting. No matter the scale of your project, whether a small urban farm or a full-scale commercial market garden, this film will offer valuable information to help make your operation more efficient and profitable.
