Good worksheet makes you think about why you would want to get into farming.
Hopefully the start of something big. Good Worksheet!
Love the questions. Made us think of things we didn’t know about.
wonderful questions… typo in last question – how do *you* want people to think of your farm?
Thanks David, the typo’s been corrected!
Great way to get your ideas down on “paper”.
Being able to answer these questions confidently was a nice reassurance that this dream can become reality.
A wonderful exercise that made me put my thoughts on paper finally. It makes my dream seem possible.
Your reply to my questionnaire responses is appreciated.
When you submit the worksheet, we email you a copy of your responses so that you can have a copy to refer back to throughout your farm planning process. Unfortunately we don’t have the resources to comment on questionnaire responses.
Thanks for making us think!
A good source to help focus the many concepts of what “your farm” may look like and how starting the conversation is the most difficult part.
Thank you for the inspiration to make a statement of what I really want and can do.
good thinking project
This was a wonderful exercise. I feel I have more direction and purpose now than I have since I began considering starting a farm. Thank you.
Great Worksheet! My problem is putting everything down on paper/in writing. I know what I want, how I want it, etc. It is just how to get it from my brain and explain it all in words!
I was never very good in writing essays! LOL Heck even if i say it out-loud and then try to write it as I am saying, I still get all fouled up! I start to write it down and then get frustrated because it is not they way I want to say it. But I keep trying.
At least worksheets like this help!
The worksheet confirmed what I already knew even though I hadn’t written it down, that I want to be a farmer. Enjoyed this worksheet.
