Custom dozer/excavation worked in between farming practices of my own and work mostly for local farming friend and neighbors, great way to earn an honest decent living while helping folks we love and appreciate and stay close to home doing it. Small town rural life is good !
Real estate appraisal - primarily farms.
Dad and I run two trucks in the off season. Mostly gravel and a little bit of grain. I also just started selling seed so we’ll see how that goes. I guess my YouTube channel is a side business too lol
Custom work and jockey equipment.
At the moment I am just starting to farm with Dad and have a side career working at a local wind farm. The money is a huge help but it can demand some hours depending on the site you can try and get on with. Otherwise just doing odds and ends for neighbors to bring in a little extra cash to warm the pockets.
Was a heavy equipment mechanic and do the rare repair job for neighbors and friends still. I haven’t been charging anything the past years being afraid they would start expecting me more often. I would rather just help out. Might have to start charging again. Also have done a custom farming job on occasion. I charged fairly low mostly wanting to help out more than anything. Enough to break even in the long run.
Started selling seed, logging and woodworking with my brother, work part time for local university farm, and gonna start trucking locally soon.
We have been a distributor for Conklin products for over 17 years. We use all the agriculture products on our farm and the products are high quality products with proven results. Many Conklin ag products now have Beck's PFR (Practical Farm Research) results.
The vehicle products, home & health, building and animal products also have great products to promote.
What is ******* and how much time does it take ?
I started farming and I’ve alway had a second job. I’ve work in the turf industry as well as consulting with agri-business, farmers that are looking at alternatives to reduce cost and build a program that uses less to gain better yields. Our son and daughter have followed that same path. They started a transportation business small but very profitable, custom harvesting, and consulting business that they’ve allowed my wife and myself to develop and work with growers.
I work for a larger row crop farmer full time, mechanic in my shop in slow times. Do some custom artificial inseminating for local cattle producers. A little bit of custom haying. I try to never turn down an opportunity to make side money.
This has been a fun side-business. It’s been very interesting learning about pivot problems across the country and very satisfying knowing that we can help.

We started a manufacturing business. Working out well but it is a lot harder then you think.
I work for a dairy genetic company doing activity monitoring for dairy as a technology specialist for them full time. The beauty is I work from home, travel when needed, make my own schedules, thus I'm able to do my own planting and harvest of 800+ acres.

Seems our area is always in need of a handyman. Most farmers have side hustles. Cows, custom haying, hauling, grain cleaning. Look around and do what people are willing to pay others to do in your area. Worked for me!
I love to go to farm auctions my wife and I have 2 flea market booths selling seasonal items and tools booths generate a modest cash flow and it’s fun. We also custom bale hay spray and buy and sell hay been doing this for 30 plus years
I work full time as an electrician along with cattle, turkeys, and crops. When things are slow I do framing.
