It's a stark question, but before making a life-altering decision such as starting a farm it needs to be taken into account.

Exit Strategies for the Small Farm: “Exit strategy” is a term for the process by which a business is sold. Eventually every business goes through an ownership transition. With family farms the situation is highly unique and if you’re thinking of starting a farm it’s worth some thought before devoting your life (and your savings) to it.
