    I would think it depends not only on your percieved value but also on potential buyers needs and wants from your business. Tally up equipment value. Being realistic. Then tally up total sales and profit divided by total customer base for each division. Maintenance, fert, etc. That should give you a good idea and if someone wants certain parts of business you may have the ability to break it if necessary. Good luck! P.s. where are you located?
