What Should I Grow to Make a Profit?

What should I grow to make a profit?

That is the ultimate question. The answer is… it depends.

In this virtual 3 hour workshop instructor Andrea Gunner, agrologist and poultry producer, will take participants through the process of how to determine profitability of an individual crop and of the farm business as a whole. Considerations such as labor costs, yield, market price, volume, among other variables are critical to the profitability of your operation.

You will come away with an understanding of data you need to track during the growing season and how to make decisions based on your operations, location and marketing plan.

This is appropriate for market gardeners, livestock producers as well as value added producers.
