Evaluating a Farming Enterprise
Lancaster Farming recently featured Old Time Farm, where Shelly Oswald and her husband, Ray, produce heritage breeds like Partridge Chantecler chickens, Standard Bronze turkeys, and American Milking Devon cattle to keep the breeds' genetics from dying out. Shelly Oswald sells her products at farmers markets and has a mobile certified kitchen to help introduce customers to her products and help in complete utilization of her animals. For example, she is producing broth from bones. The Oswalds became certified to process poultry on their farm, as well, so that they can sell cut-up chicken. Other enterprises such as making small-batch maple syrup and selling turkey eggs to crafters help open new markets and add to farm income.
