Beyond Production Agriculture Business Information Bundle - Welcome
Using this Site
Welcome to the Beyond Production Agriculture Business Information Bundle - your one-stop resource centre for information on establishing and managing a value-added business.
What does value-added mean?
Value-added agriculture builds on the primary product or service of an agricultural business by adding a new component that has economic value and consumer appeal. For example, a fruit farm that normally sells its product to a retailer may add value by expanding into pick-your-own, direct sales to consumers at their farm or local market and/or the sale of jams and jellies made onsite.
When considering whether to expand your farm business from primary production agriculture to include a value-added product or service, and before you invest any money in capital, labour, services or supplies, you will want to research your new business venture. This business information is a great place to start.
