Costs of Production for Diversified Vegetable Farms

October 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

In this workshop, Tanya Murray from Oregon Tilth will cover the basics of how to account for crop specific costs of production and how cost information can be used for decision-making.

Workshop participants will do a simple costing exercise to estimate the costs of production for a sample crop. We’ll look at how making changes to price, yield and production methods can change the amount that a crop contributes to profit. We’ll also talk about strategies for doing the record keeping that you’ll need to calculate your costs. Farmers that want to take a deeper dive into costs of production analysis will be introduced to the Know Your Costs to Grow program and learn how you can participate starting in 2020.

If you have any questions, please contact Victoria Binning at 503-373-3774 or victoria.binning@oregonstate.edu
