Two Programs to Support Beginning Farmers

The Farmer’s Edge

A 10-week, on-line business course designed to give farmers the skills and tools needed to cultivate financially sustainable businesses. Whether they struggle to understand the basic economics of their business or just want to increase their farm’s profitability, this course is for them!

Group sessions begin in December 2018 and meet on-line for 2 hours each week. The first hour is devoted to a specific business topic, such as QuickBooks or Cash Flow Budgeting. The second hour is an open discussion for participants to ask specific questions about their businesses. This format combines the benefits of a business workshop and one-on-one technical assistance, with the added value of peer-learning.

At the end of the course participants will have:

  • A straightforward bookkeeping system designed to help them manage their business
  • A cash flow budget and the tools to make sure they stay on track
  • Systems for understanding all the costs in their business
  • A strategy to grow their business profitability in the coming years
  • Financial analysis to decide where to focus their time and money.

In other words, they will have a plan to increase profits!

I’m offering an “early bird” discount for folks who register by November 15th.  More details can be found on my website.

If you would like to offer scholarships for farmers who couldn’t otherwise afford this class, let me know.

The Farmer’s Office – Online

The Farmer’s Office – Online is a self-paced, online course; a video version of my book, The Farmer’s Office. For farmers who learn better by watching (rather than reading), this is the tool for them. It offers 13 video courses, from QuickBooks to Cash Flow Budgeting to Reaching Financial Statements.

In addition, farmers can get live support by attending the regular live webinarsas well as “office hours“.

At the end of the program, participants will have the skills and tools needed to confidently grow their business and improve profitability.

If you would like to offer your clients/farmers access, send me an email and we can discuss volume pricing.
