Selecting a crop is the most important decision in farming.  MetroFarm Associates will help you decide which crops to grow by assessing the potential of your farm site.With decades of experience in agriculture and business, Michael Olson and associates have seen many times, in many ways, and in many places, what can be farmed for profit, and what can’t be farmed for profit.   Their experience and know-how can help you…

Saved me a million!  “I was planning a major investment in my property but got to thinking I should get a second opinion before I spent the money.   Being a fan of Michael Olson’s book and radio show, I called on him.  We walked the land one day, I told him what I was thinking, and we talked.  Finally, he asked, “Do you want to invest in an Ethel Jean?”  When he explained what an Ethel Jean was, it all clicked, and I realized he had just saved me a million dollars!”   Dr. T.L.  Aptos, CA

    I own and operate Apple Hill Ranch we are USDA certified organic and have been in business for 25 years we are the only farm in Inyo and Mono county that sell and produce Fruit and Veggies and have been very successful, How can you help my operation?

  2. I’ve been certified organic up until last year. we’ve been undergoing setbacks for a year and a half. we’re greenhouse tray growers of wheatgrass and formerly sunflower greens and pea shoots. we’re in transition of moving to the country but have not found some land. i’m interested in your service and would like pursuing it once we do get to the country. I just wanted to touch base and establish a rapport to get prepared. thank you
