I live on a small family farm that's going to get smaller some day soon.I need to think creatively to hopefully make a living out here.Wondering if anyone knows if predator mites or other beneficial bugs could be a profitable business?My sister thinks maybe a worm farm could work..I am really looking for any ideas to make a living out here.I don't wanna lose the family homestead.

RE: Anyone know if raising mites makes $

I don't know about raising beneficials, but on my small family farm 28 acres now, with 16 acres of woods, we are growing veggies and cutting firewood out of the woods. Also raising a small amount of beef, pork and eggs/chickens for individuals that want local meat/eggs.
