    Starting a farm and rural business is an exciting and challenging undertaking. But a good business plan is often one of the keys to a successful business start-up. The real value of creating a business plan is not in having the finished product in hand; instead, the value lies in the process of researching and thinking about your business in a systematic way. No matter how small or large your inventory, bank account, and payroll, planning is essential in every business. To be profitable and sustainable, a farm operation must have a clear understanding of marketing, production, labor, and finances. Taking time to anticipate problems, formulate thoughts, devise a strategy, and evaluate your business will help your business be a success.
