Do you have a business plan? Please write an informative description of your vision & goals for your farming future.:
My business plan can vary based on what kind of land I find. For a short/ long term lease arrangement I would focus on vegetables, possibly some strawberries, and short term crops. I have hoophouses and would build those on site to allow for some season extension. When I am able to purchase land my focus is to add more fruits, berries, and perennial crops, vegetables, egg layers, and possibly four season gardening. I'm very open to exploring all options. Currently running a small farm and working a full time off farm job to continue saving towards my farm. My future farm will have to be located near Cincinnati/ the surrounding counties.
