Let me call it:
Ideas and Tips on How to start a Farming Business.
1. Avoid Debts
Farming doesn’t HAVE to be financed with borrowed money. Avoiding debt should be a primary goal for any new farmer, even if they have to start very, very small for a few years. I I you want to start big. But do not run into debts.
2. Allow Yourself the Opportunity to Fail
Wait a minute. This was supposed to be about not failing, and now we’re saying failure’s an opportunity? Ironic, I know. Bear with me.
Do not be scared to experiment. When you fail, get up and keep moving
3. Identify Your Market Before You Start Farming
You need to figure how you will see your products before planting. Who are the people to buy, where are they living, how are you going to get customers and the likes are part of your plans before.
4. Grow Your Passion
Shovel, dirt, gumption. Check, check, and double check. What comes next?
Everyone knows that farming is hard work. So do yourself a favor: grow something that you love.
You might want to hire people depending on how big the farm is. But for a start, do something that you like.
5. Set Reasonable Goals
Don’t dream too big and don’t go so low. Just be reasonable.
6. Don’t Worry About What Other People Think
There’s an old saying that goes, “The easiest way over the wall is through the door.” Do not feel bad or low self esteem about what you are doing. You are feeding people and working. Wave bad comments behind your ears.
7. Read. Ask Questions. Share Your Knowledge.
