Relationships with Farmers Markets

Build relationships at the farmer’s market, or local farm stand. Chances are, there’s one in your area.

If you can manage to not be a spaz for long enough to hold-down a conversation with a stranger, these people have a lot to teach you. Now is the time to start, in the slow/off-season.

  • Ask them about what they grow, or what type of animals that they raise.

  • Buy something (their time isn’t free). Don’t be a Jew. Spend a little, and don’t waste their time. Become a repeat customer.

  • Offer to lend a hand on their farm, if they need it. Even if it’s one day, and for free, the skill you learn will be invaluable. Oftentimes, they will pay you anyway, usually in produce or meat.

  • If there are other customers, be respectful and don’t hold-up too much of their time.

  • Ask questions! Let them know that you’re interested in learning, and you may find someone willing to teach you something.

  • Realize that this isn’t your time to drop crime statistics, or to start naming. You’re there to learn. And if they are able to give you a little hands-on experience, don’t be a lazy faggot. You may very-well be way out of your comfort zone. Embrace it, and better yourself.

  • If you play your cards right, you will make a valuable contact for your future endeavors. These people may very-well be willing to sell to you at a discount, or in bulk. They may also offer you products or deals that aren’t available to other customers. Hell, they may even be willing to set you up with
    excess tools or supplies from their operation, to help you get started.

YouTube and Telegram are great for information, but tangible relationships and experience are priceless.
