Launching, operating, and continuously improving a successful farm business requires farmers to develop an impressive variety of skills ranging from production to financial management to marketing to labor management. We work with farmers at all levels of business development to develop plans and build the skills needed to meet their business and quality of life goals. Based on your interest and needs, we provide a la carte business coaching services or in-depth services through the Vermont Farm Viability Program.
Business development services are tailored to farmers’ individual needs and can include, but are not limited to:
- Business planning
- Succession & transfer planning
- Cash flow projections
- Enterprise analysis
- Land access
