Planning for Profit

This session of the Young Farmers Conference was recorded on Friday, December 7th, 2018 at Stone Barns Center.

Planning for profit

Farming offers fundamental satisfaction from producing food, working outdoors, being one’s own boss, and working intimately with nature. But unfortunately, many farmers avoid learning about the business end of farming; because of this, they often work harder than they need to, or quit farming altogether because of frustrating – and often avoidable – losses. This workshop will focus on the planning and analysis tools needed to run a profitable farm, in an easy, step-by-step, farmer friendly format.
