Event Details

Let’s get down to business! While many folks are attracted to farming and ranching because of their love of the land or their desire to do truly meaningful work, farming and ranching is still a business. At HMI we know that to create a sustainable, healthy agricultural enterprise, you need to run it as such. So, we’ve created our Whole Farm/Ranch Business Planning course to give both new and experienced farmers and ranchers the knowledge and tools they need to do just that.

Our six-day course is taught in two-day increments, so you have plenty of time to start applying what you’ve learned, while you’re still enrolled in the course. Naturally, we teach the Holistic Management Farm/Ranch system that’s been helping ag producers build sustainable farms and ranches for thirty years. You will create a Whole Farm/Ranch Goal and learn the Holistic Decision-Making process. From there, you will create a whole farm/ranch holistic goal, a draft business plan, a financial plan and a marketing plan. You will also receive a certificate upon completion.

For more information on this event, including information about our speakers, please visit our website landing page.


This in-depth course is designed to help both new and experienced farmers and ranchers learn key business, marketing and financial planning skills including:

  • Creating a business that WORKS for YOU based on your whole farm/ranch goal
  • Testing your ideas, exploring possibilities and examing feasibility
  • Learning to plan a profit, not just hope for one
