Another thought - If you'll be doing much marketing through the internet, having a name with what you sell in it (Joe's Herb Farm, Windy Hill Strawberry Farm, Justahilly Farm Fresh Produce) and getting a domain name (e.g., www.MarysLavenderFarm.com) with that name in it, will help tremendously with your ranking with internet search engines.

We were Thyme For Ewe for the first 13 years of business.  In the beginning I grew herbs for farms and my partner raised sheep. Thyme for me, Ewe for her....you get it.  I kept the name when we split up to keep the friendship.  We are now Seasons Eatings Farm.  We're four season producers.
Changing names was hard.  I grow very few herbs now and we've never had a ewe on this farm.   We needed something that reflects what we do now.  It took me a long time to come up with something that is ridiculously obvious!
