This class will meet for six sessions: 11/29/17; 12/13/17; 1/8/18; 1/24/18; 2/7/18; and 2/21/18.

This six session course will help you to:

  • Update your business goals, and compare where you are now vs. where you want to be.
  • Establish which crops are helping you reach your goals - and which are not.
  • Evaluate new and potential markets.
  • Improve your time and people management skills.
  • Develop a crop plan that gets you to your goals.
  • Evaluate potential financing opportunities and identify your best options.
  • Write your new business plan - and then make it a reality!

You will hear stories from practicing farmers and guest speakers who are experts in agricultural business, production and marketing. And, you’ll have the opportunity to network with other experienced growers, including farmers in the Maine Farms for the Future Program. Most of the sessions will also be available via remote internet access. All sessions will include two 15-minute breaks and ½ hour lunch to allow plenty of networking opportunities with all participants.
