Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Mansfield News Journal:

Dave Ernst earned certified organic farming status this summer — the culmination of several years of careful preparation and scrupulous record-keeping.

Ernst, who is in his early 30s, tends to garden beds brimming with tomatoes, Swiss chard, garlic and other produce on land owned by Carolyn Bricker, his grandmother, off Ohio 96 east of Shelby.

While the biggest growth in U.S. agriculture has been in very large-scale farms — above 5,000 acres — Ernst is among those bucking the trend, joining a niche market of small-scale farmers in the growing “locavore” trend.

He focuses intensively on relatively limited acreage, producing vegetables he sells at four farmers markets in the area to local residents who enjoy browsing for heirloom-variety fruits and vegetables that often can’t be found in groceries.
