2017 Grow Your Farm (Replaces: Your Farm - Your Resources - Your Business) (Session 10 of 10)

When:

Saturday, March 11, 2017, 10 a.m. to noon

Description:

Information on production techniques is relatively easy to find and use, but what many landowners need is help to develop the farm as a profitable business. With this in mind, Grow Your Farm is designed to assist you, the producer, in creating and planning your farm as a business. This course will help you:

  • Identify and prioritize personal and family values and use them as the foundation for the farm mission statement and goals.
  • Learn how to "walk the farm" to assess the land and its facilities.
  • Learn to evaluate the feasibility of particular farm opportunities.
  • Understand the components of a business plan and create one of your own.
  • Understand financial aspects of a business plan and review popular tools to manage financial records.
  • Consider different types of agricultural marketing and draft a marketing plan.
  • Become familiar with a variety of legal issues that pertain to farming enterprises.
  • Network with other farmers.
