SESSION 1: BOOKKEEPING BASICS FOR SMALL FARMERS (Session is full)

August 16, 2022

7pm - 9pm EST

1-FB-BookkeepingBasics-1.png

A true 101 for those entirely unfamiliar with farm business bookkeeping, this session is about learning how to organize and record your financial data. Based on feedback from prior sessions, we’re breaking down the basics even further for those who are just graduating from a shoebox full of receipts. We'll discuss and demo building a chart of accounts, performing transactions, and reconciling bank statements. We'll compare and contrast Quickbooks Online (QBO) and Quickbooks Desktop, do a walk-through of QBO basic functions, and leave plenty of time for your questions. Take-home resources include the slide deck, a glossary of terms, and a sample chart of accounts.

This workshop is available at ZERO COST, thanks in part to funding through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration and through a grant partnership with Charlottesville's Community Investment Collaborative.

So you’ve got a system for organizing your numbers, but now you’re wondering how to make sense of all this data. In this session, we'll move into accounting, aka interpreting your financial data into a meaningful strategy for your business. We'll discuss Profit & Loss (P&L) statements and balance sheets, how to interpret them and why they matter, and cash flow concepts. We'll also address red flags in a P&L - how to identify them in the first place, and how to strategize solutions. Take home resources include sample P&L's and balance sheets.

This workshop is available at ZERO COST, thanks in part to funding through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration and a grant partnership with Charlottesville's Community Investment Collaborative.

With supply costs rising ever higher, farmers are grappling with how to adjust prices. If you're mostly squared away on bookkeeping and accounting for your business, we'll dive into the red-hot topic of cost vs. price with a discussion of product margins, production vs. resale, and crop costing models. Take home resources include the slide deck, and templates for product costing and margin analysis.
