Make your operation the "go-to" farm, part 2

Darren Frye continues his Finance First discussion on the intentional pursuit of a reputation as an ideal tenant on the land you farm. He's got more questions for you to ask yourself to assess your relationship with your landlord, and subsequently to help you build that positive reputation in the community.

In this extension of last week's topic, Darren talks about securing relationships with potential new landlords for future dealings; and about working with the next generation to ensure that they continue in your footsteps and nurture these relationships far into your operation's future. Introduce your landlords to the next generation of leadership on your farm. Get your future leaders in the mix and groom them not just in running things on the farm, but also landlord networking and relationships. It can only be a benefit down the road.
