Little more background on my daughter, she knows she wants to do something in the Ag realm but uncertain on what that major might be. We have talked about her coming back to the farm and possibly going into business for herself raising poultry, eggs maybe a few goats, sheep, cows and marketing all of those items to end users. She could still help me on the farm if need be and I could also help her when time allows. People needing/wanting to know where their food comes from has grown a lot and we think there is an opportunity there possibly. Could also grow vegetables and put up hoop barns for late fall or early spring growing.
Just ideas we have thought of. I guess the idea to be an entrepreneur and self-employed is very appealing versus punching a time clock for someone else. But I also think maybe her working outside the farm for a few years may be good also but that also would delay precious time getting her business started and off the ground.
