Self-Sufficient & Debt-Free Backyard Farmers… – Eco Snippets

Self-Sufficient & Debt-Free Backyard Farmers…

Self-Sufficient & Debt-Free Backyard Farmers...

Backyard Solar Power Revolution...

When Myrna and Earl Fincher married 53 years ago they started farming their yard “out of necessity”. As Earl remembers: “we were both very young when we got married and I was in between jobs. And we were expecting so there were several strikes against us”.

Today, the Finchers make a living selling their organic produce to restaurants and at the local farmers’ market twice a week for much of the year. They had no experience as farmers, but learned by trial and error. To supplement their farm income, they also sell the birdhouses that Earl makes to ward off insects on their organic farm.

In this video, we check out some of Earl’s creations, like a warming bed for plant starts and a cork-board for planting seeds (published worldwide, but not patented) and talk to the Finchers about their last half century with Earlybird’s Place and what makes them happy…

If you like this idea, be sure to share it with your friends and inspire someone you know. Anything becomes possible with just a little inspiration…

Paul Dougherty here we go! Check out this guy.


Reminds me of the lyrics to the old John Lennon song, “life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans”. I’m pretty sure they weren’t planning on making this their life’s calling when they started, but that’s what happened. Great for them.


The secret? PAY OFF YOUR DEBTS FIRST and live lightly!
