Farm Viability

The UVM Extension Farm Viability program helps advance your farm planning. Enrolled participants work one-on-one with a farm business educator to learn new management skills, access resources and prepare business plans.

Farm Viability Business Planning Options

Full Business Plan: Develop a comprehensive business plan that covers all aspects of the business for 1-3 years. Includes short / long term goals, marketing plans, management plans, risk analysis and financial statements.

Transfer Plan: Planning focused on the unique relational, tax and legal consideration of transferring ownership and management of the farm to other people or parties.

Enterprise Analysis Plan: Isolate and analyze one enterprise within your business or test the feasibility of a new idea.

Cash Flow Plan: Develop budgets and update the financial statements needed to make key decisions or apply for financing.
