Farming Status and Plans

Description of farming status, plans, and practices:

Beginning to put together a business plan for small, organic herb farming operation. My interest in growing herbs and tea stems from a known immediate need and sales channel. We own a local tea shop and purchase teas and herbs from around the world to create our blends.

Description of marketing method:

Already connected to high volume business. We own a local tea shop. If we can bring some of these herbs to in-house production (me), we can have better control of product and increase our profit margins.
