Do you know what "revenue" means?

My experience at the USDA is sitting 30 minutes while they explain to me how they want to help new farmers and then giving me all the reasons why they won't give me a small loan to secure a farm lot.

1) I don't have minimum 3 years experience working on a commercial farm- because growing up in farming family with many homesteaders no count.

2). I have to give a detailed plan on what I intend to grow and timetable for profitability - impossible because island is microclimate hell and you don't what you can grow until you are actually on site for a few years. I know what I would like to grow but there is like a 50 inch rainfall difference in the 40 mile stretch I'm looking at.

It's very discouraging. Basically just stuck begging people to consider selling on terms.
