Business Plan/Goals

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

Since I am a young farmer with an abundance of questions still, I'm looking for a slow transition or permanent land and animal caretaker position where I can have access to the knowledge and expertise of an older farmer, while I in turn provide labor, enthusiasm, and security for the future of the operation. I am particularly interested in cattle, hens, and turkeys, with a curiosity about horses, dog breeding/training, and crops. I am willing to learn anything though, and have proven myself to be a dedicated worker and quick learner.
