1) Be patient. Farming is a long term game.


2) Find mentors to learn from but also don't be afraid to question why things are done in a traditional kind of way.


3) Prioritize soil health. If you take care of the soil, it will take care of you. Cover crops are a great thing to start with to improve the soil.


Here's a really nice article on starting to farm from scratch.

I think one key to farming is to always be looking for more/better information. Asking questions like you’re doing here on AgFuse; reading what local experts and studies say about farming in your region; attending conferences and other educational events. I think that kind of mindset and approach can really make a difference.
