Entrepreneurial & Diversified Ag
A new kind of farmer is looking beyond corn and soybean fields. Farmers trained in the practices of sustainable agriculture can take advantage of emerging markets in local and specialty agricultural products by using entrepreneurial business and niche marketing skills. Sustainable agriculture is economically profitable, ecologically sound, and community-based.
Demand for specialty and locally grown vegetables, fruit, grain, livestock, and related agricultural products have increased in recent years.
What/Where the jobs are
Farms of all sizes, small businesses with niche marketing products.
