FarmLink Business Skills Camp

Series of four courses on October 3, 10, 17 and 24

3pm - 7pm

Sacramento: Exact location upon registration

$80 for all four sessions (includes dinner and resources)

This four-part series will provide you with the tools you need to evaluate the overall business health of your farm or ranch. It will equip you to take specific actions to improve your knowledge or skills. Those who complete all four sessions will receive a zip drive with all materials, a certificate of completion, a one-on one-session with a farm credit specialist, and an hour of one-on-one technical assistance with the instructor.

Topics include:

  • How to structure your farm and ranch business

  • How the 2017 Tax Act changed the tax picture for small farmers and ranchers

  • How to track production, sales, and costs to maximize profitability

  • Understanding cash flow, credit, and building and preserving long-term wealth

  • Environmental Regulations, Food Safety, and Labor concerns

The course instructors are Poppy Davis and Alan Haight. Poppy is a former CPA with a law degree who specializes in business training for small farms and ranchers. Alan successfully established a diverse ten-acre farm in Nevada County in 2001 and recently transitioned farm operations to a beginning farmer.

In addition to completing this registration please download and complete the Farm Business Health Assessment prior to the first class and e-mail it to info@farmlink.org. Be sure to enter your responses in the “Score” and “Data” columns, not next to the answer you select. If you are unable to complete the Business Health Assessment and e-mail it, please arrive at the first class a half hour early and we will have hard copies there for you to fill out manually.


This material is based upon work that is supported by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, U.S. Department of Agriculture, under award number 2017-70017-26886.
