What kind of preparation does a young farmer need before approaching a retiring farmer or investor? Do they need an existing business that needs growth or just a solid business plan and budget all set out?

Yes the best way to convince an investor or retiring farmer is to show you have already risked your own money, you have made money and you are dedicated to farming.

 

We encourage all our farmers to be a farm manager and/or lease your own bit of dirt to prove your skills. If you haven’t, then it is a big risk for the partner to back you.

 

Get out there and prove you are the best so that it is easier to open doors with those who can back you.
