Organic Farming Events in New York: Cost of Production, CSA

Two Events Hosted by Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA) New York: Cost of Production, and CSA

Cost of Production: Answering Farming’s Toughest Questions Date: October 29, 2012 – October 30, 2012; Location: Jordan Hall, 630 West North Street, Geneva, NY 14456; Time: Monday 9:00am – 3:30pm, Tuesday 9:00am – 12:30pm Cost: NOFA-NY members $20, for all others $35 Pre-registration is required, lunch included.

Do you know which parts of your farm generate profits and which parts could use some work? Do you know how to set prices for your products? Without accurate figures, it’s tough to know where you stand. This workshop will help farmers more effectively set prices, improve profitability, and make good financial decisions. The focus is on vegetable operations, but other farms are welcome.
