Through a detailed discovery process, we work with clients to determine the strengths and weaknesses of the operation. The standardized process identifies the short, medium and long-term goals of the farming operation.

A complete historical financial analysis is conducted and future budgets are prepared. Included in the planning process are components such as debt evaluation, rent analysis, risk management and human resource requirements.

At every step of the process, we identify actions, assign responsibility to specific tasks and calculate timelines to ensure the plan is implemented effectively. The end result is The Strategic Farm Business Plan™ – a plan that ensures you are in a position to take advantage of future opportunities while managing risk.
