Insights on Vegetable Farm Financial Benchmarks
March 28 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm$10
For the past couple years, CISA and Pasa Sustainable Agriculture have worked with a group of diversified vegetable farmers across the region to collect key farm financial metrics and develop benchmarks to help farmers evaluate the health of their vegetable operations. CISA staffperson Kristen Wilmer will share insights gained thus far from this project, including what the numbers suggest about the health and challenges facing diversified vegetable farms in our region, and how you can use key financial benchmarks to more strategic business decisions at your farm. Attendees will come away with ideas for how to track and use key numbers – like income generated per acre, labor invested per acre, payroll as a percent of gross revenue, and more – to better understand their farm operations and hone in on opportunities for improvement. The workshop will be geared toward vegetable farmers but is open to all.
The standard workshop cost is $10. We offer a sliding scale to ensure anyone can attend, and additional attendees from the same farm business are welcome to attend free of charge; we do not want finances to be a barrier to attendance.
Please contact Kristen at email@example.com or 413-665-7100 ext. 12 with any questions.
Funding for this workshop was made possible by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, U.S. Department of Agriculture, through the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education program under subaward number LNE20-394.
