Steps to Success self-assessment tool
Not all successful organic farms excel in the same way. Steps to Success (PDF: 363 KB / 4 pages) is a series of five simple worksheets meant especially for organic farmers who want to assess their own management and financial strengths -- and identify areas they want to improve. We designed Steps for Success with input from farm business management instructors, agricultural economists, and organic farmers. It is free to use and share. If you want a print copy, call 651-201-6012.
