Agricultural Entrepreneurs: The First and the Forgotten?

As the farm business environment becomes more challenging, the modern farm manager must become more creative and entrepreneurial. More agricultural businesses are breaking out of the family farm stereotype and are creating opportunities for those with the drive and the talent to manage. New business models, new methods of production, and alternative marketing channels have also accompanied the rapid changes of the last few decades.
Steven Richards, Business Consultant of the Farm Credit of Western New York, will present a new paper exploring the demographic and economic forces behind the changes in today's agricultural business environment, as well as outlining the issues and policies that need to be addressed in the future.
Peter Barton, Owner of Barton Orchards, LLC, and Nathan Rudgers, Business Development Director of the Farm Credit of Western New York, will comment.
