Exactly the right questions to build a farm business on
Good market research takes more than having a conversation with people. You need real answers to real questions.
Your market research should give you the ability to:
- Make business decisions
- Speak with a lender
- Convince your spouse

Innovations in LED lighting are transforming the Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) industry.
These techniques let you grow the crops year round, which means your customers don’t have to experience a disruption in deliveries. You can achieve as many as 17 harvests per year, and avoid laying off your employees.
But these techniques are only appropriate if you have a demonstrated demand for the crops. The Guide to Local Food Markets is designed to help you find your customers, understand their needs, and design your farm with the customer in mind.

Market research is one of the most intimidating parts of the business planning process.
The simple answer is that you have to get out and talk to people. This is the step that is most intimidating for most people, but it doesn’t have to be.
When you review our market study document, you will have a much better idea about what questions you should be asking, and you will have templates to help you collect important information on your clipboard.
If you’re thinking “$7 is cheap. What’s the catch?” then here are three reasons that should put your mind at ease:
1. $7 puts this information within reach of everybody. Whether you are a backyard DIY enthusiast or an accredited investor, we believe that you should have the best information available to make business decisions.
2. It weeds out the freebie-seekers. We want to empower people to take action, and in our experience charging anything…even if it’s just a buck… gets rid of 99% of the dreamers.
We offer a lot of free information on our website and YouTube channel. Sometime people need help making sense of it all. This means we are working to create professional resources that you can use. We have to pay ourselves something to be able to continue doing our work building a local food economy.
3. We also believe that once you find out how to access your food market, you’ll want more and maybe…just maybe…you’ll be back to participate in the Modern Farmer’s Feasibility Workshop.
Is there a guarantee?
You bet! All of our training materials and resources have a 30 day money back guarantee.
In other words, if you aren’t happy for any reason, just let us know and we’ll give you your money back. We obviously don’t think it’ll come to that, but if you’re even the least bit worried if this will work for you, then put your mind at ease.
You either get the results you want or you get your money back. It’s as simple as that!
Will you try to charge me more money?
The Guide to Local Food Markets includes links to other resources, including in depth classes from Upstart University as well as the results of our year long production trials. We charge an additional fee to access this valuable information, but we try to keep it reasonable for most bootstrapping farmers (they are all priced under $10)
