Sit down with the other people who will be involved in the farm and compile a list of the resources available to help you start and manage your farm. You can be as specific or as general as you'd like in responding to these questions. More detail can be more useful, but it's a matter of personal preference how you choose to do it.

Thank you for the site and helping me get a handle on a long time dream!
Seems to be a useful tool in farm planning, worth taking the time to complete if you are seriously considering farmin as a lifestyle and career choice.
Would be helpful to have the ability to download this form as a PDF. The fields are too small to see my responses. I’d like to take some time to flesh this out. Also tough to read / the formatting is off – I’m on a Mac in browser Safari.
Thanks so much for the information. God Bless
very useful tool for planning. not hard to fill out and see results
The worksheet helps me to take inventory of where I am at the present time.
I agree with Jen. I would like to print my information and keep it for my personal records.
Thanks for your feedback. As the system is set up now, your answers are emailed to you once you submit the form and at that point you can print them out if you like. But please let us know if this system still doesn’t work for you: we want our website to be set up in a way that is as convenient and easy to use as possible.
Putting together a business plan has been a problem for me for a long time. This is the first business plan resource that I think will actually help me put together a business plan for my farm.
