Keeping Good Records for Organic Farms
January 20 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Whether you keep a detailed Excel spreadsheet or a box of documents in your cupboard, keeping track of records is vital to running any business. Setting up a system that works for your particular needs can be challenging and even overwhelming at times. The purpose of this panel is to share different kinds of record keeping practices and brainstorm useful resources for organic farmers looking for efficient ways to keep their records. Farmers will share their data collection tools and spreadsheets to demonstrate different ways of keeping records. Organic certifiers and inspectors on the panel will discuss some of the common problems they encounter when it comes to record keeping on organic farms, provide advice, and share useful tools.
There will be time for a Q&A session and breakout groups where audience members can talk about the kind of record keeping resources and templates they would like to see.
