Country Farm and Business Management

Country farm and business planning is the process of planning each aspect of an agricultural operation to maximize income and profit. It is a challenging task that requires a range of economic, technical and human conceptual and analytical skills. The problem is that the final result of any action is contingent upon conditions that cannot be predicted or guaranteed and requires a degree of flexibility in the face of uncertainty.

Management of business and farming are inextricably linked, and a successful farmer must be able to think about both sides of the equation. He or she needs to be able to plan production based on the market price and climate conditions while also being an effective financial manager, planning future funding and monitoring progress toward the goals established.

It is also crucial for the owner to earn enough income from other sources to cover operating costs and provide a margin of safety against unexpected emergencies or events. Additionally the public facilities must be available to accommodate customers and visitors (e.g. parking, signage, education and assistance for customers).

Many ranches and farms offer an educational experience for their visitors. This includes information about the production of fiber and food, land management and the history of farming. This is a great method to keep and attract customers and is generally well-received by the general public. It may be possible to receive funding from a state or local agency to help cover the costs of education.
