Pasa and Kitchen Table Consultants are teaming up with diversified vegetable farmers like you analyze your farm’s finances and have productive, honest discussions about the state of your business and opportunities for improving your bottom line.
Because we’ve worked with you on previous consulting and research projects, we are inviting you to join us for our Advanced Farm Financials Consulting & Peer Roundtables this fall and winter. Exact dates will be determined based on participant availability.
- We’ll work with you over the summer and fall to overhaul your farm’s accounting system and customize your Chart of Accounts so you can make better business decisions and compare your business to standardized industry and peer benchmarks. Your new accounting system will tell you where and when your farm is making money, and where resources aren’t being used efficiently.
- You’ll participate in three winter roundtable sessions with peer farmers working at similar scales and in similar market channels to discuss debt management and loan opportunities, labor management and costs, and price models for crops and market channels. Leaning on your peer farmers will help you better understand the typical, the possible, and the totally unexpected in farm finances.
- You’ll receive detailed financial benchmarks that compare key indicators for your farm with similar peer farms. You’ll also receive a free one-year subscription to QuickBooks Online. Plus, you can continue to connect with your peer cohort for ongoing support!
Pasa and KTC have been helping farms benchmark since 2017. We piloted our Advanced Farm Financials Consulting & Peer Roundtables model with three farms this past winter—the insights have been so valuable that our participants skipped a full day of spring field work to focus on building their management skills! Our work with you (valued at $3000 per farm) will be supported through a generous grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.
