Farm Business Planning
Understanding that your agricultural operation is a business will help you to run it with long-term sustainability in mind. To really do this well, you need to create a farm business plan. This document is vital for developing and shaping your operation. It also plays a key role in helping you sustain your operation over the long term, obtain funding and other resources, and manage risk.
Creating this plan won't happen overnight. It requires a lot of thought, conversation, realism, and research. It also is a "living document": it evolves and changes as your goals, circumstances, and needs change.
A business plan is made up of a series of parts. To complete your business plan click on each numbered module and create the parts of your business plan discussed in that module.
We offer a 6-week Farm Business Planning Class every winter! Please check the Event Calendar for dates.
