Hello Folks.. OK,, one of our options is to, find out who to talk about the requirements for a Ag loan to start a business? Any ideas or thoughts? Web page or address contacts? (Please, I do not want to hear it is too hard, everything worth while is a challange.) Have raised sheep for many years and did very well. I came from a family that raise sheep and cattle. This part of this state is not a good place to start a Farm, so will be looking at other places. We want to go Certified Organic,,,,,Have the information packet that I have had for a number of years, and already run this Farm by the Oregon Tilth. Plan to diversify, into small Heritage Cattle, Hair sheep (As much as I love wool sheep, is to labor intensive), Chickens-eggs and meat, Fruit and berrys. My husband and son would be doing the large majority of Farm work, I will have to stay with just the paperwork for the most part. We would start small and very slowly work up from there. It is something we both love to do,, and the commute would be from the house to a barn or field. Much better than being in Traffic for 2 hours each way. Just trying to keep our options open, if DH can't find a EMC Tech job by the end of May.
