Welcome to the farm community and congratulations on choosing farming for your new business enterprise. Agriculture provides many opportunities to start and grow a farming enterprise that meets your needs and interest. Many of the medium and large scale farming operations, supporting several families today, started small and grew over time as skills developed, markets were refined and demand for their product increased. And farming is a
good small business. Farms tend to stay in business longer than other small businesses and
farms tend to be transferred to the next generation more frequently than other small businesses.
