Darby’s farming journey began in 2007 with just $600 and 50 broiler chickens on pasture.

Today the farm is producing nearly $200,000 in gross annual sales and provides a modest living for Darby, his wife and two children.

Darby successfully transitioned himself from the corporate world as a mechanical engineer into farming and this course is designed to help you do the same.
