There are plenty of books out there on organic farming. (It’s true—just check out our bookstore!) But there aren’t a lot of books on the actual nuts-and-bolts business of organic farming. Author Richard Wiswall is changing that.

This Thursday, October 1, you can get your hands on what’s sure to become the new bible of the business of organic farming: The Organic Farmer’s Business Handbook: A Complete Guide to Managing Finances, Crops, and Staff—and Making a Profit.

In this comprehensive business kit, Wiswall covers:

  • Step-by-step procedures to make your crop production more efficient
  • Advice on managing employees, farm operations, and office systems
  • Novel marketing strategies
  • What to do with your profits: business spending, investing, and planning for retirement

AND…A companion CD offers valuable business tools, including easy-to-use spreadsheets for projecting cash flow, a payroll calculator, comprehensive crop budgets for forty different crops, and tax planners.
