How to Get Started in Agriculture
Growing Character, Health, and Income, From the Ground Up!
1. Have an agriculture plan, follow it, and be consistent. Know what you want to do. Have a specific goal start with one item and allow yourself 3 years to completely test and work your farm project. (Short and long term goals.)
2. Set up a timeline (start date, production date, marketing date, who you are serving-family and/or community.)
3. Set up a team of individuals with similar goals. It is nearly impossible to succeed by yourself.
4. Find partners to help you from start to end.
Partner examples include: NRCS, FSA, Rural Development, College Extension Agents, NWIAA, and much more.
