Business Plan/Goals

Do you have a business plan? Please write an informative description of your vision & goals for your farming future.:

Business plan is currently being created (once finished, will upload.). We want to do a 100% natural organic farm, with regenerative soil practices. Ultimate goal of developing a balanced ecosystem. My husband and I, for 7 years have always gardened and our dream is to aquire land to implement our natural approach to farming with the earth's natural cycle. This in turn will allow us to provide for ourselves, our two children (4yrs and 1yr), and eventually our community and local school districts. Education is fundamental and we stand behind the belief that no man, woman, or child should ever go hungry; "Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime"- Loa Tzu. Any further insight that I can provide, please feel free to contact me. Thank you
