If you a city dweller like myself, you might have this image of a farmer thumbing through his copy of the Almanac that is hanging from a nail while he looks up at the weather vane to see what is going on.
The truth is, farming has become incredibly high tech, and it is an industry (like many others) that is going through a paperless transformation.
I had the pleasure of being interviewed for the March issue of Country Guide Magazine, which is Canada's oldest farm publication and is “about the business of farming, providing farmers with strategic business thinking”.
The digital edition is online, so click here to read The Paperless Farm.
My dad grew up on a farm, so I guess this is as close as I am going to get to carrying on the family business.
