An extra source of income - Mini farming, if done right, can become a source of income for you. You can also trade your produce for other items if you make too much for your family.

Extremely manageable - Mini farms are far more manageable compared to fully-fledged farms. They also cost less to start in comparison.

Easy to keep track - With a large farm, it may be hard to catch diseases and pests early.
