Agripreneurs are a new breed of entrepreneurs combining their love of farming and agriculture with business. Agripreneurs can range from any age group; however most are younger people getting back into the food business to bring healthy better choices to the consumer. Not all agripreneurs are farmers; some have taken the path of adding value through processing or new packaging for the food that farmers have grown.
Someone who is a successful agripreneur is often one who has an outside the box idea, and is spotting opportunities where others see none. It is worth remembering that agripreneurs do not have to do it all alone, they can join with others to create a successful value chain while still bringing change.Find Agripreneurs On Agrilicious
