Onsite Farm Tune-up (including open consults)

This is our favorite type of consulting as we feel that it gives the most value. In this situation, we visit the farm and spend a full day(s) working with you on your challenges and opportunities. Usually we will have you send us a list of questions and topics before our visit so we can be prepared to add maximum value.

  • This also gives us a solid base for understanding your setup in working further with you on specific areas.
  • After our day on the farm, you get our Tune Up Guide that goes over our recommendations and any follow up resources which we feel relevant.
  • You can also turn this into open consult, where we offer it as an event and allow a small, screened group to follow us around learning as well. We have been on hundreds of farms and bring our expertise to look over your farm holistically and implement best practices for streamlined, effective farming.

Our 7 Part Framework for a Successful Farm

(we keep these in mind while working with you)

 

  1. Mastering yourself. Frequently, farmers start and immediately get bogged down not knowing how to structure their time, set up their personal habits for success, and knowing and capitalizing on their strengths and delegating the weaknesses.
  2. Working towards a successful business model. Running the numbers and knowing that your enterprises will allow you to be financially sustainable is key. Otherwise it is a expensive hobby.
  3. Mastering the craft. After you figure out what to produce, learning how to produce that is key. Many farms try to grow a crop and don’t invest in the proper research and resources to do it effectively. That’s why they can’t compete in the marketplace. Producing your product 80%  better than your competition is what it takes to be successful. Investing in high quality consulting can be the difference between making money in year 1 vs struggling for 10 years and failing.
  4. Systems and standard operating procedures (SOP’s). Learning your bottlenecks, leaning your systems and putting SOP’s in place to easily teach and benchmark those systems is the key to increasing your profit margins and decreasing your stress levels.
  5. Hiring and training the right team. Motivated employees working on what will provide maximum return to the business is essential. Leveraging the power of the other is how you multiply your value.
  6. Marketing and understanding your customers needs. Learn who your customer is, how to connect with them, and how to solve their problems. This will make selling easy.
  7. Scaling your business. Move from working in to working on the business, creating a culture of fanatic discipline, and focusing your bandwidth to what will give the most return. Create a culture of learning and ban hubris.
