For the first five years, Mike worked on his farm alone due to lack of funds to pay workers as his three children were still in school. "It's only now that I am able to hire people to help me." He then described his property as a trial and error farm. "Mostly error," he chuckled. "But new farmers are lucky because they could learn from our mistakes."
