So to be more specific the produce will be sold in 3 ways, farmers market, U-Pick and by distributor.

POEWR is my husbands branch of the business and it's non-farm. He's a scientist so he has a desire to do some studies on the things we are growing, medicinals, etc.

Consulting- earthworks is not going to be what you think probably. I know my limits. I'm seeing at the very most it'll be doing some minor ditches or basins in urban environments for planting out of nursery stock. I don't see that as being a big part of it.

I am going to be doing value added as I can. So the birdhouse gourds are a value added thing. We will be painting them.

Nice work! very thorough. lots going on, though. Maybe you could have more branches come from each other as opposed to directly from the trunk, in order to emphasize the stepwise fashion of things involving infrastructure. so, branching off of animals would be the things necessary for you to have them, which would support the leaves or animals. Might be a way of identifying patterns so that you can plan efficiently, pairing where possible. just a thought tho.

have you considered tourism to property? onsite demonstrations, workshops might require parking, more facilities.

oh- maybe you can draw in different harvesters of the leaves to demonstrate intended markets!! i like this model you're using!
