November 19, 2005 – Last Class

Starting in about a year ago, we enrolled in a “growing your small market farm” class where, among other things we wrote a business plan for an “on-farm store.” The plan and research showed us that the store would probably not be successful, so we avoided a lot of pain! We did however incorporate into an LLC and helped focus on some other planning.

Today was the last meeting after a summer hiatus and during the meeting, our instructor, Penny Huber Brown won an award as the “Woman Entrepreneur Achievement Award” for her work in helping small farmers think like small business owners.
