Creative financing- what does that mean? Do I mean robbing a bank? Printing counterfeit bills? Nope, sorry. I’m going to talk about mostly legal ways to raise capital! I recently gave this talk at Organicology in Portland, OR and a similar workshop at the Small Farmers Journal Auction in Madras, OR about how farmers can build financial and social capital to start, grow, or maintain their businesses. Much of the material is drawn from my book, “Farms With a Future: Creating and Growing a Sustainable Farm Business“. Read the book and watch this Powerpoint presentation linked below if you want to delve deeper into this subject. I am also available for individual consulting to help you identify your own opportunities that are unique to you.
