You have questions about your business: can I afford new equipment? Is this market profitable? Which crops earn the most profits for me? What will it take to support myself full-time farming? In other words, how can you work smarter, and not harder, to achieve your goals?

In this 4-week online course, we will dig deep into farm finances so you know how to get the answers you need.

Thanks to funding from the Dukes Conservation District we’re able to offer this for FREE to Vineyard farmers.
