Curtis Stone, of The Urban Farmer, is one of my hero’s in so many ways.
First of all, he is a PROFITABLE, organic farmer.
Secondly, he is 100% a capitalist and not ashamed of that.
Thirdly, his story is incredible and needs to be shared.
Curtis was a musician, touring the world in a band when he was a younger man. As most young men in bands, Curtis found himself partying, doing illicit activities and just hanging out with the wrong crowd.
But after a bunch of varying epiphanies, he cleaned himself up and bootstrapped his way to farming…without owning ANY land.
Oh, but even though he was clean, he still faced adversity and was nearly down and out in 2014. But he kept at it and now he is making money selling produce on 1/3 of an acre, managing a huge YouTube channel, writing a successful book and literally traveling the world bringing common sense business to farmers everywhere.
It’s a great story and one I can’t wait to share. I only wish I had another hour, or four, with him!
To get more of his backstory listen to this interview he did with Jack Spirko from The Survival Podcast. Enjoy!
