Does anyone know of a good text/reader/set of materials for students in 
helping them to create/write a "Farm Plan?" What USDA materials do you like?

I just reviewed a text, RURAL PROPERTY PLANNING: LAND CARE, by Matheson for 
BIOLOGICAL AG AND HORT. It's an excellent guide but it's unique to rural 
areas in Australia. We're in the Pacific Northwest. Anything on farm 
plans in the United States would be helpful.

When I was at Cornell, we wrote farm plans using basic concepts and 
principles from our Agronomy, Ag Eng, etc. course work. We'll do that 
here, but I was hoping there might be some compiled materials on the topic.
