The Farm Business Essentials (FBE) online course has been intentionally designed to help you create a complete, profitable, livestock based farm business that works for you.

No matter if you are in the very beginning stages of your farm's development, or if you have already begun farming but are looking to take it to the next level, FBE will take you thru this process.

You will have streaming access 24/7 to all 22 modules of the course which walk you through exactly how to plan, start and grow your farming enterprise.

  • The course focuses on what works in the real world, not in theory.
  • No filler or unnecessary content.

In this course we will take an in-depth look at where you are currently at in life and business, where you want to go with your farming future, what you need to put in place to get there, and what are some of the next action steps to turn your ideal farm into reality.

The course will focus on:

  • selecting the right farming enterprise
  • balancing family with farm business startup
  • starting a farm on the side, or on a part time basis, and then scaling that operation as needed
  • find the right sales model for you and your market
  • how to market and brand your farming enterprise
  • business basics – insurance, taxes, corporate structure, website, social media

Darby’s farming journey began in 2007 with just $600 and 50 broiler chickens on pasture.

Today the farm is producing nearly $200,000 in gross annual sales and provides a modest living for Darby, his wife and two children.

Darby successfully transitioned himself from the corporate world as a mechanical engineer into farming and this course is designed to help you do the same.
