Farm Recordkeeping for Productivity & Profitability
Accurate and up-to-date financial records are essential to any growing business, but are especially important to farms and agricultural businesses. Without a good recordkeeping system in place, decisions will be made based on hunches, not reality.

Join us Saturday, November 8 from 8:30am to 4:00pm for Farm Recordkeeping for Productivity and Profitability. Location is WSU Snohomish County Extension's Cougar Auditorium, 600 128th St SE Everett, WA.

In this one-day workshop participants will learn about farm-based financial records and bookkeeping from the experts at Northwest Farm Credit Services and Moss Adams. We'll take a look at three different systems for farms: paper only, basic computer and paper, and a thorough walk through a farm-based set of QuickBooks with a certified trainer. In addition, each farm will receive one copy of "Fearless Farm Finances: Farm Financial Management Demystified" by  Paul Dietmann, Craig Chase, and Chris Blanchard.

If you are interested in learning about farm record keeping, how to use QuickBooks on your farm, or just want to build upon what you already know, this workshop is for you.

According to Chris Blanchard, farmer and co-author of Fearless Farm Finances, "Farmers need to keep good records so that they can predict the future. Our memories tend to trick us into thinking that things were better or worse; good record-keeping helps to smooth out the variations, facilitating rational decision-making."

Class size is limited and pre-paid registration is required. Cost is $50 per farm and includes lunch for two along with one copy of the book "Fearless Farm Finances". Meals for additional farm members (two included) are available for $10 each. To register, visit FarmRecordkeeping.brownpapertickets.com or download the form at snohomish.wsu.edu and mail with your check.
