List of Alternative Crops and Enterprises for Small Farm Diversification

This list of alternatives was compiled using AFSIC reference request files, the subject files in our office, as well as previously compiled lists, most notably "Innovative Farming Idea List," (1987) compiled by Nancy Grudens Schuck, Farming Alternatives Project, Cornell University and "Ideas for Alternative Agricultural Enterprises," (1996) put together by the Missouri Alternatives Center. [See their Web site's database of Extension and related on-line publications about alternatives: http://agebb.missouri.edu/mac]. This list is not comprehensive, but presents some of the more accessible innovations available to farmers.
