Farm Business Planning Course beginning in Kitsap County

BREMERTON – WSU Kitsap County Extension will be offering its popular Ag Entrepreneurship Course on starting and sustaining a profitable small farm or agricultural enterprise beginning January 22nd.  Community members are invited to sign up for this intensive, hands-on learning opportunity.  The course features a full line-up of local guest speakers: bankers, accountants, attorneys, and successful farm owners.

Participants will gain skills in business planning, direct marketing and record-keeping. They’ll also receive information on federal and state programs targeted to the needs of small producers, including resources to improve risk management and conservation practices.

The Ag Entrepreneurship course costs $250, including materials. The cost to community members has been reduced due to a USDA grant and partial scholarships.  Continuing Education Units are available.  The course will be held Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 9:00 pm at the Norm Dicks Government Center located at 345-6th Street in Bremerton.  To register for the Ag Entrepreneurship Course or for more information contact Diane Fish at 360-337-7026, dfish@wsu.edu.  Registration information can also be viewed on the web at: http://county.wsu.edu/kitsap/.
