Farming Alternatives: Resources for Help in Developing New Farm-Based Enterprises
Andrus, Karene; Knoblauch, Wayne A.; Weld, Minot
This bibliography was developed by the Farming Alternatives Project as a resource for New York's farm families on exploring and evaluating farm business options. These materials are intended to provide basic information for those considering changing or adding enterprises to their farm or natural resource based business, or pursuing new or innovative marketing strategies for their products or services. While this list is not exhaustive, it was our goal to highlight some of the more useful resources on rural enterprise start-up, management, and marketing. The publications were selected not only for their content, but also for their availability and relatively low cost. In addition to the publications included here, many comprehensive texts on the subjects of farm business management, small business management, and marketing are available at college, university, and public libraries.
