Many businesses and organizations possess what is known as a mission statement, which is essentially a written statement, to say why the business exists, its values, where the business is going in the future and what it hopes to accomplish.

The very existence of the mission statement means that the owners have given due consideration to the purpose of the business and its long-term plans, goals, and objectives.

This is really the essence of effective farm planning and may sound a bit highfalutin and farfetched for your typical farmer, whose average age is nearly 60 years, and perhaps it is for many. However, it may be highly relevant for that person's successor, particularly those planning expansion.
