"Finding Your Farm's Hidden Value"

Why attend this workshop?

Many farm and rural entrepreneurs are finding that growing and supplying traditional commodity products is simply not enough! Not enough markets, not enough returns, not big enough margins and definitely not enough profits. Forward think businesses are exploring diversification and value added innovations that can help them add new value to what they already do so they can put extra dollars in their pockets.

This 2 day workshop covers the full how-2 gambit from identifying and evaluating value added ideas through to taking them to market and selling more of what you produce. We follow new value added ideas from their inception through development to market launch. Then I help you build a strong business around what you do.

What is Value Adding?
Value adding is going to be different for each business. I define value adding as anything that you can do so that you get to put more dollars in your pocket than you would selling your products at a commodity farm gate price.

If you feel like you're too busy to take this two day workshop, think about how much easier it will be if you had a new box of tools that you could take home to help you do what you do on your farm better. You will gain time saving tips, knowledge and mentorship from a top industry consultant that has spent years helping farm and rural based businesses develop their value added ideas.

There is an old saying that you don't know what you don't know, and it's true. How much time and money will be wasted if you don't know the value added process, the short cut tips, or the next steps to take. Busy people are the people that take this How2 workshop, because it saves them time, money and gives them a head start. It is many times easier to build on the knowledge of others who have been through the process verses starting from ground zero and making costly mistakes, sometimes over and over.

Stop thinking that you can't add new value to what you do! Even the smallest new value can often put new dollars to your bottom line. You need to start asking; what if it was possible, how would I go about adding new value?

While value adding may not be for everyone, this workshop will help you determine if value adding is an opportunity for your business. Years down the road will you still wonder; what if I had tried that new idea?
Our greatest regrets are often the risks that we never take!

I look forward to meeting you at the workshop and helping you define and redefine a value added future for your farm or rural based business.
