There just aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done, right? That feels especially true during those crazy-busy times of the year, like planting season. Being consumed with day-to-day operations makes it easy to lose sight of the big picture and your established vision of where the farm is headed. However, it's vital that you, as a farm leader, keep that long-term vision in mind.
Your long-term plan for the operation's future brings purpose and direction to everything you and your crew are doing on the farm day after day. Once you have that vision defined, you can start laying out and implementing the plans, training and programs necessary to fulfill that vision, for both the legacy of the farm and for your own peace in retirement.
