How to Start a Propagation Business - Bootstrap Farmer

How to Start a Propagation Business

Concept:

We wanted to see if adding a propagation sales channel would make sense for our farm using a feasibility study framework.  This is something you should use to work through ideas you plan on executing on.  We approach this so you can apply it whether you are starting from scratch, or adding it to an existing business like we did.
