FamilyFarms Group wants to help your family farm successfully compete in the rapidly changing row crop production industry. Let us serve you.
Our Ag producer services are specifically tailored to help family agriculture producers succeed. We offer a unique mix of Ag producer services to help our cooperative of agricultural producers grow their businesses. Our Ag producer service experts are available to help you succeed in all areas of the agriculture producer business.
FamilyFarms Group will help you plan, organize, staff, lead, and control your farming operation. Our Ag producer services are geared toward helping you focus on future opportunities so you don’t become overwhelmed by past problems. We will help you create an action plan for growing your business – defining your critical objectives and assigning essential tasks.
Don’t worry; we’ll move at your pace toward your vision. Along the way, we’ll provide you with the training, tools, and expert coaching you need to grow your farm business.
As part of our Ag producer services, FamilyFarms Group offers General Manager training to help you identify the best candidate for the job. Then, we will help your GM develop the skills needed to effectively run your farming business. In addition, we help agriculture producers set estate planning and succession goals, delineate asset ownership, and coordinate interactions with various outside professionals, such as lenders, attorneys, accountants, tax planners, insurance agents, and governmental compliance experts.
As an extensive network of like-minded, growth-oriented producers, FamilyFarms Group has access to the most current, state-of-the-art information on agriculture production practices available. One aspect of our Ag producer services is sharing that information with you. At the same time, we give you direct access to other farm operators with whom you can collaborate and share best practices.
FamilyFarms Group offers valuable Ag producer services, resources, and a sounding board where you can share ideas on equipment, inputs, agronomic practices, and new agricultural technology. In addition, our Operations Manager training will provide your current or prospective Operations Manager with the skills and knowledge needed to effectively manage your farm’s operations.
FamilyFarms Group will work with you to develop an effective Sales Plan to meet your revenue objectives. Your Sales Plan will define the steps needed to maximize the value of your crops. We will also help you define and implement strategies for maximizing revenues. For example, that might mean growing specialty or added-value crops, which are grown by some FamilyFarms Group members.
No matter what your growth goals are, you’ll find there are significantly more acres available in your immediate area than what you might think. FamilyFarms Group Ag producer services include a session dedicated to writing a Marketing and Business Development Plan to help you set your goals, identify the right approach, and outline the best guidelines for growing your business. We also offer Ag producer services and training to help you grow your acres, retain your acreage, get involved in your community, and prepare for a crisis or emergency.
FamilyFarms Group Ag producer services include training and on-farm consultation for the people side of your business. We can help you to minimize your personnel-related legal risk and maximize your employees’ output. We can also help you develop a well-defined Human Resources plan. Having the right Human Resources tools in place will allow your farm to grow in an organized way. Moreover, using proper hiring techniques, job descriptions, organization charts, and communication of performance expectations will allow your farm to transition to the next level with minimum impact on employees.
The result will be improved employee productivity, retention, and morale.
Are you getting what you need from your financial systems?
The keys to effective financial systems are a qualified accounting staff, proper training, and in-depth analysis tools, including benchmarking and budgeting. As your farming operation grows, the financial complexity will increase. It is important to build a foundation of sound financial principles before your operation becomes too big to manage. We have Ag producer services in place to help you get started on the right track financially and prosper.
One of the biggest concerns for farm operations is securing sufficient operating funds through farm financing. Whether your financial needs will be met through a grant, an operating line of credit, or potential investors, FamilyFarms Group may be able to help.
FamilyFarms Group is committed to helping your farm grow – today and for many generations to come. Learn more about becoming a FamilyFarms Group member, where you’ll be able to take advantage of our exclusive Ag producer services.
