Welcome to Modern Farm Business. In this premiere episode, we'll begin looking at the foundation of today's successful farms by exploring the benefits of crafting and embracing a Vision Statement for your farming operation.
WHAT IS A VISION STATEMENT?
A Vision Statement is a clearly defined vision of the future of the farm which serves to lend clarity and direction to employees, leaders and other stakeholders in the operation. It gets everyone involved on the same page. It gives leaders of the operation something to hold decisions up to and say, “How does this fit into the plan?”
WHY IS A VISION STATEMENT IMPORTANT?
Farming is long, hard work that takes dedication. If the only reason for it is simply to make money or solely for the sake of the work itself, it can easily become drudgery. A Vision Statement provides meaning to the work, a motivation in that we’re creating something unique or important.
