Money, Money, Money

Let's talk about the reality that most farmers are not making a living, and figure out how to change that. Get a financial snapshot of starting a farm, try out free tools and structures for business development, setting prices, analyzing your business, finding profit, record keeping, and more. Farm viability is key for Indiana farmers, and we hope you will join this hands-on workshop.
