More starting out

Resources for new farmers hoping to start out keep popping up all over. The new ATTRA newsletter has some resources for folks looking to get into agriculture.

The 'Is a farm business right for you?' section cracked me up.

"Do you want to have an organic farm? Do you want to spend more time with your family? Do you want an enterprise that will equal your current salary? Or is a mellow lifestyle your goal?"

They probably could have clarified that to "Do you want a homestead, or a working farm?"...an important, but all to often overlooked distinction.
