I’ve just finished my junior year of college and I’m only two semesters away from the “real world.”
Aaron and I are planning a wedding, starting to remodel our house and looking to the future more than ever.
Beyond just writing, I’m putting more time into my photography and expanding my web design skills. I’m trying to find a way to serve the average farmer, the commodity group and the non-ag client.
I’m approaching this as a business now, not just a hobby. I’m dedicated to making it a career.
More than anything, Aaron and I are determined to start our own beef cattle and show pig farm.
We know that young farm families face a lot of challenges.
We know we’ve got a rough path ahead of us because the only capital we have going into this is our passion for animal agriculture and faith in ourselves. We know that it will take years of hard work to get there.
We’re beginning a new chapter in our lives and we’re asking for any advice you have to offer.
If you could do it again, take things back to when you started your farm or business, what would you do differently?
What should young farmers know about the business they’re getting into?
How do we create a profitable business that we can pass on to the next generation?
