Beginning Farmer Learning Network webinar series

Wednesday, August 16, 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Over the course of the 2016 season, 30 organic farms in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts tracked their crop-specific costs of production using a newly developed cost of production workbook.  Results were analyzed at the individual farm level and also aggregated to provide production metrics on a per acre basis.  Join Jen Miller, NOFA-VT’s Farmer Services Coordinator, to dive into the NOFA cost of production workbook, examine crop-specific and farm-level results, and discuss best practices for farmers who want to do this analysis on their own farms.  We will conclude with a discussion of how farmers can use cost of production analysis as a tool to strategically increase the profitability of their farm businesses.
