The lean farm guide to growing vegetables : more in-depth lean techniques for efficient organic production

Image of item
Book
At Clay Bottom Farm, author Ben Hartman and staff practice kaizen, or continuous improvement, by cutting out more waste - of time, labor, space, money - every year and aligning their organic production more tightly with customer demand. Applied alongside other lean principles originally developed by the Japanese auto industry, the end result has been increased profits and less work. In this field guide companion to his award-winning first book, The Lean Farm, Hartman shows market vegetable growers in even greater detail how Clay Bottom Farm implements lean thinking in every area of their work, including using kanbans, or replacement signals, to maximize land use; germination chambers to reduce defect waste; and right-sized machinery to save money and labor and increase efficiency. From finding land and assessing infrastructure needs to selling perfect produce at the farmers' market, The Lean Farm Guide to Growing Vegetables digs deeper into specific, tested methods for waste-free farming that not only help farmers become more successful but make the work more enjoyable
