The feudal agrarian production system promotes peasantry where the peasants were offered with hungers and the productions were robed off. A farm is a consolidated mass of lands which caters a unit of farm production and capable of generating marketable and marketed surplus. The growth of farming has got a congenital pattern along with the growth in industry and entrepreneurship. Farming to entrepreneurship is basically the process of transformation, very simply production to product, and of course through value addition.
