Monday’s Star Tribune business feature on LSP’s Farm Beginnings program quoted Chris Blanchard, a southeast Minnesota farmer who regularly speaks to FB classes. Blanchard’s presentations on long-term business planning exemplify Farm Beginnings’ bottom line goal: don’t set wannabe farmers up for failure. More than one graduate has told me that Blanchard’s practical advice helped them avoid many a pitfall once they got down-and-dirty in the real world of farming. To get a flavor if how passionate Blanchard is about long-term planning and sustainable farming, check episode 59 of LSP’s Ear to the Ground podcast.
