Easy and lucrative are often mutually exclusive. If it was easy
everyone would do it. So easy & lucrative usually only works for a few
years until others figure out how to grow the fruit or vegetable and
prices start to come down.
What works for me in terms of items which offer a reasonable return and
bring people to the farm stand or help in membership retention with the
Sungold cherry tomatoes
