Business plans tell a story: they also help you, the entrepreneur, refine your business operations and growth strategy, and communicate to potential investors and lenders that you’ve thought through every detail. When you’re starting a new farm or looking to grow your existing farm, you need a plan. Whether or not you need investors, clearly articulating your vision with a business plan is a critical first step.

Our template coaches you through each section of the business plan, with a thorough list of topics to cover and details to include, with plenty of thought-provoking prompts to get you making decisions about how your farm business will look and be managed. Working through the outline will leave you with a fleshed-out, but concise, business plan that will get you started on developing your farm start-up or growth concept and approaching investors and lenders.

“Thank you so much for making this the easiest, most enjoyable business plan experience ever.”

~ Kate Canney, The Neighborhood Farm
