The ability to grow our business depends on the availability of money. It is therefore very important for farming families to be able to think carefully about their financial circumstances. Predicting costs, prices, profit margins and cash flow patterns is vital for planning and decision-making.
The initial Farming as a Business training program is delivered over fifteen sessions across three days. Day one is primarily about understanding financial concepts and is intended to assist both young people, who are in transition from financial dependency to financial independence, as well as more mature people who have limited experience dealing with money.
