Planning is essential to any business, no matter how large or small your inventory, payroll, and bank account. To be sustainable and profitable a farm operation must have a clear understanding of production, marketing, finances, and labor. Having these plans mentally is not enough! Taking time to formulate thoughts, evaluate your business, devise a strategy, and anticipate possible problems will help your business be successful. The Farm Business Planning tools on this page will help put you on the right track.
