Farm Spreadsheets

For All Seasons

with Dan Brisebois

A complete framework to customize,

plan and manage what you grow,

 harvest and sell.

 

This program presents everything I’ve learned from farming with spreadsheets  over the last twenty years. We used these systems at Tourne-Sol co-operative farm to scale our farm to provide organic vegetables for 500 families a week and to run a thriving online seed company. During that time our team has grown to 16 people and we’ve set up our spreadsheets so that everyone is able to use them.

 

Farm Spreadsheets For All Seasons isn’t just about a BETTER CROP PLAN. 

 

It’s about learning the how to customize ALL YOUR FARM SPREADSHEETS!

 

Not only will you set up an integrated crop plan built to meet your financial targets, but you will also set up systems to monitor and make changes as your growing season unfolds.

And all along you will learn how your spreadsheets work and the simple techniques to customize them. 

 

With this program, you will be well equipped to tackle all your farm management challenges with a spreadsheet!

Farm Spreadsheets For All Seasons

is the ONLY program of its kind that…

 

  • Offers you a full crop plan framework

    To make sure you grow what you need to hit your sales targets and meet your financial goals.
  • Integrates your harvest projections & records seamlessly into your crop plan.

    This way you can easily see where you at and learn from what happened to make sure you improve with your next crop plan.
  • Teaches you how to customize the crop plan framework to respond to your farm's needs.

    All farms are unique. If the crop plan framework isn't quite perfect for your farm, you'll learn the spreadsheet skills and tools to make it fit your specific situation!
  • Coaches you through the year to MONITOR and ADAPT your crop plan.

    It's one thing to PLAN out a growing season but it's another thing to know what to do when things start to go off the rails. I've got your covered with monthly webinars through the summer that will focus on what you should be thinking about at that part of the year to help your season gets back on track.
  • Creates systems that are easy to share with everyone on your team, so they can follow along and enter data as needed.

    Because what is a good plan if there's only one person who knows how to use it!
  • Works for small scale or large scale growers 

    (no matter how you define those scales, or what you grow! This system works for vegetables, flowers, herbs, & even seed crops.)

What Past Students Have To Say About

Farm Spreadsheets For All Seasons

I signed up to take Dan’s Master Your Farming Spreadsheets course (now called Farm Spreadsheets For All Seasons) last January, immediately doubting whether I should better have spent the money elsewhere. However, as I had already gained so much from his free Farmer Spreadsheet Academy and a Youtube workshop, I figured I owed him for that at least.

And I did NOT regret having spent the money. In fact, using Dan’s simple principles of business and my new-and-improved spreadsheet system, our farming operation has been the most efficient it has ever been. Our sales are up 33% from last year and almost 100% from the year before, without an increase in land space or labor.

I highly recommend the course, with my thanks to Dan for his tireless efforts to share his expertise

Diane Vetters, Clover Hilltop Farm, Kentucky, USA

I took Dan’s course last winter. Little did I know that the crop planning spreadsheet I created during the course would become the most valuable tool on the farm this season. Dan is very skilled with a variety of spreadsheet apps and is a patient and dedicated instructor. You won’t regret signing up for his class.

Farmer DJ, DJ’s Farm Fresh Produce, Massachusetts, USA

The farmer spreadsheet course helped our farm think of how to have a plan that was more seamless end to end. Ithough we had a pretty robust plan and record system Dan's systematic approach helped us see lots of possibilities for improvements. It also made us think more of using cloud-online tools, and away from desktop applications, and decentralization of data collection. I am looking forward to a full implementation of the learnings this fall.

This is the year to join Farm Spreadsheets For All Seasons

 

It's been a challenging farm year in all kinds of ways. I'm sure you're familiar with them all. But let's face it, every year on the farm can be challenging. Even if you have all the equipment and gear.

I truly believe that the only way to overcome a challenging year is with a good plan and that's why I created the Farm Spreadsheets For All Seasons program. I've seen year after year the value of a solid crop plan not only at Tourne-Sol where I farm but on all the other successful farms that I know, And I want to help you build a solid crop plan so that your farm can be successful.

This program does come with a 1 week money back guarantee so you can sign up without risk.
