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 businesses that go beyond production agriculture.
What does value-added mean?
A value-added business is generally the transformation of a product or commodity from its original purpose to another valuable state. Value-added agriculture increases the economic value and consumer appeal of an agricultural product or commodity. For example, a fruit farm that normally sells its product fresh, may develop a line of frozen product or preserved product (jams, jellies, etc.) to increases their economic value.
When considering whether to expand your farm business from primary production agriculture to include a value-added another 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.
