Been through this process quite a few times while my grandparents have been trying to sell their farm. They want you to be big enough so that you can make money. A good business plan is essential. You have to have enough land, sometimes an appraisal for the land. Its a big pain in the butt, and right now a lot of the money is being held up due to the economic stimulus package in process. Be prepared when you go in, be organized and professional. Know what you want and what your goals are.
