Ask me.   Can a retired nurse become a successful farmer?

I have an appointment.

I just finally spoke to the local Farm Service Agency lady, and we made an appointment for me to come in, develop a balance sheet, fill out paperwork, and figure out how much I can/should get in the form of an operating loan.

I’m already intimidated by the paperwork and tempted to cancel. I need to go find my big girl panties, and quick. The appointment is in the morning.
