Andy Pressman is passionate about farming and he enjoys sharing his
wide knowledge and experience relating to sustainable and organic
gardening practices with others. Currently residing in Northeast
Pennsylvania, when Pressman isn't busy with his urban farm, raising
crops or tending to his chickens and honey bees, he is typically
assisting farmers by providing expertise on organic crop production, market
farming, season extension, local foods, urban agriculture, and farm energy. Teaching comes naturally to Andy, and SPIN Farming techniques incorporates important aspects and elements to organic and sustainable farming, which is why Andy chooses to work and teach using this method.
For us new to the term, SPIN-Farming
stands for S-mall P-lot In-tensive Farming. It is an organic based, non-technical, easy to understand, commercial
farming system for land bases that are less than one acre in size. SPIN-Farming is entrepreneurial in
spirit and makes it possible to earn significant income from sub-acre land
bases by capitalizing on minimal infrastructure and overhead costs. It relies on hand labor to accomplish most farming
tasks, utilization of existing water sources to meet irrigation needs, and
situating close to markets-- all to keep investment and overhead costs low.
