At AgChoice, we believe that part-time farmers represent a key piece of the future of agriculture in the United States. Why? One key reason is that part-time operators (Meaning those whose primary source of income is from a non-farm occupation) are now the majority of all farm operators. That means that, as a part-time farmer, you're every bit as much of a business operator as most other farmers.

The part-time farmers we know take their operations very seriously as businesses. Although you might often hear the term "hobby farmer" used, many view it as much more than a hobby and recognize the importance of running their farms in smart, strategic, business-savvy and sustainable ways. At AgChoice, we're committed to providing the knowledge, expertise and resources to help part-time farmers accomplish just that.

What should be the next step in your farm's growth? Is it time to upgrade equipment? Should you add more crops or livestock to your mix? What new opportunities -- and challenges -- lie on the horizon? These are examples of the many strategic business decisions you face as a part-time farmer. Our business consultants at AgChoice are here to help you make the choices that will drive your success.
