Building Farmers training helps develop business plan


The Northeast Colorado Building Farmers steering committee is excited to announce the request for applications for the inaugural 2010 program for this region. The broader Colorado Building Farmers program is now in its third year and is extending the program's series (usually held over eight weeks) into a series of four half-day classes held in several locations in the Northeast region in February and March. The program is designed to help new farmers explore farming as a business and provide intermediate and experienced farmers with tools and ideas to redefine and enhance their business management, production, and marketing skills. The Market Farm track focuses on a food crop business that either markets produce directly to consumers or develops more targeted wholesale accounts with restaurants and retailers. Program outcomes include the creation of or modification of a business plan by all participants.
