The Langley Sustainable Agriculture Foundation hosted a Farm Planning Business Workshop in 2015, featuring three experts speaking on how to make the most out of a farm-based business.

Whether thinking about starting a farm or already involved in agriculture, workshop attendees were offered help in creating a solid business plan as a critical part of establishing and sustaining a successful farm-related business.

The three speakers included local farmer and businessman Chris Bodnar from Close to Home Organics, Clint Ellison,  an Agri-Food Business Development Specialist with the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture, and Chris Henderson, a Chartered Accountant specializing in the food sector and consultant with the Ministry’s Farm Business Advisory Service.
