Necessity is the mother of invention, and the fact that so many folks have come to the Hudson Valley & Catskills to try their hand to work the land necessitated the need for a crash course in recordkeeping for farmers. No kidding! And Cornell Cooperative Extension is all over it (to nobody’s surprise; they are the go-to resources for anything related to all things agrarian, after all).
The first of two educational sessions of Capturing Money Using Quickbooks: a Basic Course on Financial Recordkeeping and Quickbooks for Farmers will be held on February 8 & 11 from 10am-2pm at CCE’s Kingston campus at 232 Plaza Road. The second is scheduled for March 7 & 8 5pm-9pm.
Both courses are $30/two-day session and are limited to 20 people, so if you’re a new farmer or, at least, new to farm bookkeeping and Quickbooks, sign up soon before they’re filled. Find out more and register here, or reach out to Carrie at CCE for more information or help registering 845-340-3990 x311 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Time to reap what you’ve sewn.
