It’s no secret – primary producers who adopt farm business management practices enjoy increased profitability, confidence, peace of mind and family and farm team harmony.

But, what are the best practices when it comes to farm business management? And, where do you begin?

The Seeding Success: Farm Business Practices Assessment Workshop (known in some regions as Growing Your Farm Profits and others as Taking Stock) is designed to help producers improve their business practices by combining self-assessment and action plan development with access to support resources to achieve results: Assess, Act, Achieve!

Who Should Attend?

The one-day workshop is free and open to all producers – new and established. Farm families and management teams are encouraged to attend the workshop together.

What to Expect?

Participants will work their way through a series of self-assessment questions to identify their current practices under key management areas:

1. Production Management
2. Marketing
3. Financial Management
4. Human Resources
5. Succession Planning
6. Social Responsibility
7. Business Goals

Sample Questions:

Based on their self-assessment, participants will identify their top priority areas for improvement to start creating action plans. Participants will not be asked to share personal or financial details of their operations, but rather assess their practices against industry best practices. Participants will also learn about additional support and resources including advisory services, training and cost-share funding opportunities to help achieve their business goals.

The workshop is being offered FREE to producers in multiple locations across Canada thanks to funding from the Canadian Agricultural Human Resource Council.
