The Lean Farm: How to Minimize Waste, Increase Efficiency, and Maximize Value and Profits with Less Work

The Lean Farm: How to Minimize Waste, Increase Efficiency, and Maximize Value and Profits with Less Work

by Ben Hartman, 232 pages, 7x10, softcover. “Factory farms” are anathema to the Fedco crowd, but Hartman brought the concepts underpinning Toyota’s factories to his sustainable farm in Indiana—and from this unlikely confluence he derived a more profitable business, a more pleasant work environment, a better product, and a happier customer. He starts with Toyota’s Taiichi Ohno’s “lean principles” for streamlining production areas (sort, set in order, shine, standardize, sustain), then shows how to identify and reduce waste of materials and movement, how to identify and create value for your customers, and how to communicate efficiently and respectfully with workers. If you have farmed long enough to have tired of frenetic servitude to your agricultural dreams, this book may offer some tools for keeping both your farm and your sanity. -Alice Coyle
