Are you presently in the USA? if so what state, do you have any capital to start with? I started a cattle breeding project in NC, I only owned 20 acres of grazing, but used large tracts of old cultivated land that had become overgrown with liw rents,and often free,as the owners were pleased to have the land used. Had I stayed on, I would have bought the land I needed for the herd I was building up, as the land there is relatively cheap.

As a beginner you must see in what area you want to settle down as farmer. Then go for finding the market trends there and decide from scope of market based on demand. For example, look for online website information available on internet globally for farmers' markets, family farmers, and other sources.

It varies from state to state. The best thing to do is to talk to the local agricultural extension agent in the town/county where you live when you move there.

Agricultural and business courses are available at some Ontario universities, colleges and through some industry organizations. These include business, marketing or production courses. Information on some agricultural training opportunities can be found......
