Annie’s Project Geared to Farm Women’s Needs
Becoming an effective farm business partner is the focus of Annie’s Project. The course, offered by Michigan State University Extension, takes the real life experiences of an Illinois farm wife and shares them with other farm women who want to learn more about a crucial and complex business environment, their own farm.
Annie’s Project will be offered on six consecutive Tuesday evenings, beginning on March 18 through April 22, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Fremont Area District Library (large conference room) in Fremont, Michigan.
Topics will include: (1) Farm Accounting, Insurance, Business Planning, (2) Marketing Plans and Risk Management, (3) How Property is Owned, Lease Agreements, (4) Estate Planning and Business Succession, and (5) Human Resources, Family Communications and Time Management. Learning sessions will include presentations and time for discussion.
“Farm women who have participated in Annie’s Project have appreciated the camaraderie they experienced during the program”, commented Kathy Lee, MSU Extension Educator. “They gained information about the various business aspects of their farms and felt better equipped to contribute to their family businesses.”
Annie’s Project costs $75 per person, and class size is limited. For more information, contact Kathy Lee, MSU Extension Dairy Educator, at 231-839-5850 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Curtis Talley, MSU Extension Farm Management Educator, at 231-873-6841 or email@example.com .
