Equipment needed:

I have a lot of my own equipment but depending on what enterprises I actually end up doing, I would need to invest in more.
Ie. I envision doing more with beef. I have plenty of temporary fencing, but depending on what/how I decide to do things, I would need to invest in a livestock trailer.
I have most equipment for small scale veggie production but I am leaning toward greenhouse production. In which case, I would need to invest in greenhouse infrastructure.

Here is a summary of the vision for my farming future and/or business plan:

I do not. I took a farm business plan during my MOFGA journey person program. I have made business plans for farm loans in the past. I am committed to Washington County and feel that the land base is so limited that a business plan doesn't really make sense unless there is a specific property or situation I am looking at. The land itself dictates the potential enterprises.
