Managing a farm is more than planting and harvesting crops or raising livestock. Farming is a business, and like any business, its success depends on proper planning and financial management. The Agribusiness Production and Financial Management Program, conducted by Megan Harrison and Jordan Scott, both Virginia State University College of Agriculture alumnae with expertise in farm financing, will help new and established farmers and ranchers learn to develop business plans, keep efficient records and discover tips on mitigating business risks, establishing credit and borrowing from lenders.

Participants will receive an Agribusiness Production and Financial Management Manual and will learn financial management strategies that will help their businesses become more profitable and sustainable. Participants will also visit local farms through virtual tours and will have an opportunity to talk with farmers about their business enterprises. The training will enable farmers and ranchers to better understand how to develop and maintain a business plan and set goals for their farm operations and/or enterprises.

BRING YOUR OWN LUNCH. SPACE IS LIMITED TO 30 PARTICIPANTS.
