Richard Wiswall and his wife Sally Colman own Cate Farm in East Montpelier, Vermont. Richard has been farming there for over 40 years, growing and selling organic produce, seedlings and medicinal herbs. In 2023, son Flint Wiswall took over the farm business, and Richard and Sally retired from farming full time.
Richard likes to share his knowledge with other farmers, and often gives talks and workshops on the often neglected business side of farming. He consults with farms to increase profitability, and also wrote The Organic Farmer's Business Handbook to help farmers with the business end of farming.
One of Richard's main goals is to see more happy, less stressed out, and prosperous farmers. See lots of free content on the Tips for Farmers page. Check out the Workshop Page for the popular workshop topics that Richard offers. Workshops can also be tailored to fit your group's needs.
In addition to workshops, Richard offers consulting services, either in person or via phone and email.
