Market Farmers Are No Small Potatoes!
Your business is growing—literally and figuratively. Now, there’s a new software tool that can simplify the business of running a successful market farm, saving you both time and money, while boosting efficiency, productivity, and profits.
As a market farmer, you may be small compared to the big growers, but there are rewards to reap.
You are your own boss, you get to work outdoors to cultivate your land, and perhaps most important, you are providing the products your customers want and need. It’s a rewarding way to earn a living or create supplemental income.
Whether you grow vegetables, fruit, or flowers—for a farmers’ market or local stores and restaurants—you must put in time, energy, and sweat to be successful. Accurate crop planning is also essential: You have to know what supplies to order, when, and how much. And proper crop scheduling will ensure you have the quantities needed to fill customer orders.
Farm Production Manager works by eliminating spreadsheets, simplifying crop scheduling, and improving your farm’s efficiency.
Using technology for crop planning
Many business-minded market farmers have relied on crop management spreadsheet templates that they have found online or created themselves. Although this band-aid solution may have gotten the job done, spreadsheets can be difficult to maintain and manipulate. There’s one tab for crop schedules; another for costs and budgeting; yet another for sales orders—it’s a clunky way to manage a business!
At ADAK Software, we knew there had to be a more streamlined, efficient way to use technology for crop management. So, we created Farm Production Manager (FPM).
A better way for market farmers to manage their crops
FPM is an easy-to-use, cloud-based farm management software that enables market farmers to streamline their crop schedules and costs, budgeting, sales orders, and more—all in one place.
Enter data once and use it throughout the system. With FPM, all of your seed-to-sale information is in one cohesive set of data that can then be input into detailed, highly customizable workflows for every step of your growing process.
Get your market farm’s big picture or drill down into detailed single-record views for granular information, even on handheld devices!
From planning and scheduling, to planting, harvesting, and managing sales orders, FPM will help market farmers to streamline processes and increase efficiency, saving time and expense.
