Do you have a good handle on which products are your most profitable? How do you determine what to prices to use to sell the products you grow? Are they based in part on the expenses you have to produce them? Steve Hadcock with Cornell Cooperative Extension will demystify the process of preparing an enterprise budget and lead participants through a “hands on” exercise to prepare you to go home and prepare an enterprise budget for the products you produce.
