    • use the Cost Study and the meeting handout as a starting point to create an Excel file which will calculate costs per acre and per ton
    • remember that there are “hidden” costs which go into farming – such as the value of your land and your time
    • watch your true profit margin to determine if your current farming operation is working for you
    • knowing the details for certain vineyard practices – irrigation, for example – helps you figure out ways to improve efficiency and save money
    • track your costs and profits for each vineyard block over time (5 years, 10 years, and the vineyard’s lifetime)
    • daily record keeping is a must and will help you feel more confident in your finances and in future purchases
    • it’s never too late to start a better budget – for more information on FREE Farmer Excel classes, call the Library at 209.333.5554
