    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.
