Record keeping help available to Maine farmers
The University of Maine Cooperative Extension and the Farm Service Agency (FSA) are partnering to provide free assistance to Maine farmers who would like to build on their ability to keep production and/or financial records. The goal of the project is to work with farmers one-on-one to help them evaluate and improve their current record keeping system or help them to implement a new record keeping system. The project began in August and will last 11 months. The goal is to work with at least 15 farms one-on-one across the state of Maine. I believe the winter months are likely the best time of year for farmers to evaluate their record keeping methods and system
I have been hired as an agriculture record keeping professional to manage the program. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 207.735.3244.
