Communicating about Personal Money Values-January 24, 2024-Online


Join us for a 2-hour workshop

In this workshop for experienced (5 years+) farmers, you’ll hear directly from farmers who have thought about the non-business side of money. You’ll think about your own priorities and have a chance to talk with others about how you’d like to move forward with your personal time and value in mind just as much as your business value. You’ll learn about the option of farm coaching for continued support in your planning.

These workshops will be led by Abby Sadauckas, farm coach, and farmer from Apple Creek Farm, and Sylvie Boisvert, farm coach and business advisor.

There are three different dates and three different locations for this workshop. Pick the ONE that works for you!

Wednesday, November 15, 2023, 1-3 p.m. in Augusta, Maine
Tuesday, December 5, 2023, 1-3 p.m. in Brunswick, Maine
Wednesday, January 24, 2024, 1-3 p.m. Online

Program Description

Financial health is personal!

In farming, we often talk business. Business finances, business planning, and goal setting for business are placed front and center. But what about the personal side? Have we thought about how we get paid, how to save for vacation, and where financial planning for the future fits into the business?  Sometimes it feels taboo. For many of us, our beliefs about money were learned at an early age and it’s not always the easiest to talk about.

There is no fee for this workshop, the cost is covered by a grant from Northeast Risk Management Education. For more information or to request a reasonable accommodation, contact 207.581.3487,
