Farming Fundamentals 3: Business Entity and Planning

The National Young Farmers Coalition is hosting this workshop for people who have some farming/ranching experience and are looking to understand farm business entity options and the basics of a business plan. Starting or growing a healthy farm business relies on a solid foundation in a business entity that accounts for your relationship between owners, customers, and investors and on a rigorous assessment of where you are and where you’re going with a business plan.
