As part of our Bootstrap Farmer Incubator, we wanted to explore starting a specialty herbs business from scratch, or adding it to an existing farm. Bootstrap Farmer Radio Co-host Nick Burton talked to Ryan Pierce of Fresh Impact Farms to pick his brain and find out how he approached launching his business.
Pay attention to how Ryan started out with this one. Knowing he was in an affluent area which would require only the best quality ingredients, Ryan took as practical approach as you can when doing something that hasn't been done before. He used a combination of his savings and a small business loan to get it launched, but he had proven his market well before making any serious investments.
