  • 3. Company Description
    Our Competitive Advantage
    The business will use an imitative strategy but will have a green tint to normal services such as dining, organic food production, festival, and cabin rentals. Through this we will dictate higher prices and because the market continues to grow forecasted profit and growth seems quite feasible. Our high quality products and services will be spoke of widely and appreciated by all of those who partake in the abundance of the property.
    Our Model
    The proposed business will use various income streams, regenerative design and management, and community outreach to achieve its triple bottom line of sustainability. Our model of meeting the important function of making money through several elements (recreation, food production and processing, and education), is a direct reflection of Permaculture design and the inherent workings of the natural world.
