Meet our Conference Keynote Speaker
Tuesday October 11, 2016
at the Jackson County Agricultural Complex Marianna, FL
Meet our Keynote Speaker Farmer and Author Richard Wiswall
Richard Wiswall has been a farmer for 35 years. He runs Cate Farm, a certified organic farm in Vermont and is author of "The Organic Farmer's Business Handbook."
Read the interview we did with him recently. In his words, his work on farm profitability "is about shining a light on their farm business, about understanding where the money is coming and going."
"Ultimately a farmer's only job is to make sure that the farm survives; if you can't make payroll then it's over." Richard said. Keep Reading here!
In addition to the keynote speech, Richard will lead a Practical Workshop called "Farm budgets Made Simple"
Early Bird Fee is $40 before September 5
