Many folks have purchased land in rural areas, and have a desire to become involved in agriculture. It may have been a lifelong dream, or recognized as a way to reduce a burdensome tax bill. Still if one was not trained in agriculture, it helps to have a mentor who can provide guidance and instruction while working to develop a project. On-site consultation and site visits can be included in activities that are planned.
GAPS (Good Agricultural Practices), organic production plans and applications, WPS (worker protection safety plans) and other required paperwork can become burdensome for people who may have other businesses and jobs. Micosta can provide assistance in completing these forms for the business owner. This will leave more time for the owner to enjoy the actual farming activities outdoors. Steven has also owned farming ventures and has practical as well as the academic experience to provide a realistic solution to your farming challenges.
