Southwest Georgia Farm Credit will offer a free business planning seminar for young, beginning, and small ag producers this summer!

Farm Credit’s comprehensive business and financial literacy workshop, AGAware ®, is designed to promote and educate the next generation. AGAware ® equips farmers with the skills they need to begin to build a business plan, improve their existing plan, or analyze their cash flows to make their current operation more profitable. The one-day workshop will address a variety of topics pertinent to up-and-coming farmers, including budget preparation, personal finance, risk management, succession planning, and more.

If you have a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) Direct Loan, you can earn your USDA FSA Direct Borrower Education Certification through the AGAware program, which is required for FSA Direct Loan recipients.

The AGAware workshop is free of charge and will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Albany, Georgia on August 26th from 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Breakfast and lunch are included.
