How do you know if what made your farming operation successful in the past is the same as what will drive your future success?
Successful operations sometimes feel like they’ve run up against an invisible barrier – that’s keeping them from being even more successful. But how do you break through the limits – whether real or imaginary – and achieve the success that you’re envisioning for your farm business?
Operations have found that having a road map plan for where the farm is heading long-term can get all stakeholders on the same page, moving in the same direction. It’s a navigational tool that helps farm leaders make decisions about how to spend valuable time and resources. And it ultimately leads to smart, strategic business decisions.
