Designed especially for small, limited-resource and veteran berry farmers or those who are interested in business and production related specifically to berry growing, this six-part Agribusiness Production & Financial Management course will allow you to:
• Find resources to help boost farm profitability and income.
• Offer hands-on training to assist you in developing valuable skills in financial management, crop production and marketing specifically for berry production.
Find out what you need to know for tax planning, record-keeping and business development as well as strategies for reducing risk and connecting to available funding through state and federal agencies—all to help you grow and sustain a successful berry business.
The course builds on strong partnerships with USDA agencies, local banks and industry collaborators to develop an innovative, culturally sensitive, level appropriate, and practical research-based curriculum. Instructors include multidisciplinary staff from Virginia State University’s Colleges of Agriculture and Business, Virginia Cooperative Extension, Farm Credit officials and producers who have had success with our programs.
Free and open to the public. Lunch is provided.
