How Much To Invest?

Have you thought about starting your own small farm?

91% of U.S. farms are classified as small, earning less than $250,000 per year. About 60% of these small farms are very small, generating less than $10,000 per year.

In this video, 12 New York farmers discuss how they financed their start-up and offer tips for those just beginning.

Some started slow, but wished they had borrowed more, so as to be more cost effective earlier on. Some were happy with the path of only borrowing what they could afford, and chose to grow slowly. Others dove right in, thinking big and borrowing as much as possible.

Great advice and interesting perspectives for those considering getting serious about farming!
