Farm Credit East to Host Business Basics for Beginning Farmers Webinar

Farm Credit East

Farm Credit East’s Director of Knowledge Exchange, Chris Laughton, will present several financial topics relevant to people either running an early-stage farm enterprise or considering starting one. This one-hour webinar will be held Thursday, December 19, from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m.

“Most people start farming, forest products or commercial fishing businesses because they are passionate about what they do,” said Laughton. “But many don’t think about the financial management end of their new business.” This webinar will explore some financial concepts important to growing businesses including financial statements, budgeting and access to capital, that are essential for the success of any enterprise.
