In today’s show, we speak with Terry Betker from Backswath Management about “Setting Your Farm Up For Success.” “By failing to prepare (plan), you are preparing (planning) to fail.” Benjamin Franklin. This quote sets the stage for today’s discussion. If you do not prepare and plan in your business, you are preparing to set your farm up for failure. Terry and his team at Backswath are management consultants, and they work with farmers across Canada to help them with; financial, transition, growth, conflict, and HR management services. Over his many years of working with farmers, Terry has noticed that the farms that take time to plan and run their farm like a business deliberately; these are the farms that do best. In this episode, Terry and Tracy dive into what exactly farm planning is and why it really is needed even if you are a small operation. Terry’s underlying message is that it does not need to be complicated. Simply put, it is time spent intentionally working on the farm business and not in the business. In other words, stepping away from the day to day farming activities and taking the time to think about things differently. As you slow down, it is amazing how you begin to see your farming operation so differently. Would you like to build a strong business foundation for your farm? Join Terry and Tracy as they navigate through Terry’s simple framework that he calls the Foundation For Farm Success.
