Description

  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • Contrary to popular belief, a good living can be made on an organic farm. What’s required is farming smarter, not
    harder.

    In The Organic Farmer’s Business Handbook, Richard Wiswall shares advice on how to make your vegetable production more
    efficient, better manage your employees and finances, and turn a profit. From his twenty-seven years of experience at
    Cate Farm in Vermont, Wiswall knows firsthand the joys of starting and operating an organic farm—as well as the
    challenges of making a living from one. Farming offers fundamental satisfaction from producing food, working outdoors,
    being one’s own boss, and working intimately with nature. But, unfortunately, many farmers avoid learning about the
    business end of farming; because of this, they often work harder than they need to, or quit farming altogether because
    of frustrating—and often avoidable—losses.

    In this comprehensive business kit, Wiswall covers:

    * Step-by-step procedures to make your crop production more efficient
    * Advice on managing employees, farm operations, and office systems
    * Novel marketing strategies
    * What to do with your profits: business spending, investing, and planning for retirement

    A companion CD offers valuable business tools, including easy-to-use spreadsheets for projecting cash flow, a payroll
    calculator, comprehensive crop budgets for forty different crops, and tax planners.
