Growing an acre of tomatoes for profit.
Hi,My name is topher.A good friend of mine is trying to talk me into helping him grow tomatoes on an acre of land this upcoming spring and Summer.He said the land had cattle and livestock on it for 30 Years so the soil is already pretty good so all we have to do is bushhog the the land and till the soil and we\'ll be ready to put plants in the ground.i don\'t have any experience growing anything on that big of a scale so I don\'t know if it\'s really gonna be as easy as he claims.i asked him how much profit we could possibly make and said about 3,000 dollars an acre growing heirloom tomatoes.i was wondering if it\'s really possible for 3 people to farm 1 acre.i know we\'d have to stake them,keep the critters off of em, keep em watered..etc. Do you guys have any advice,can it be done?? Thx.
