UVM clinics to offer budget help to farmers
MIDDLEBURY — University of Vermont Extension farm business educators will be available to meet individually with Vermont farmers at several locations in late February and March to provide assistance with farm budgets, update balance sheets or address other financial matters.
Sessions are 60 to 90 minutes and will be tailored to the financial planning needs of the individual farm. The cost is $25. Appointments may be scheduled at www.regonline.com/2016budgetclinics.
These one-on-one consultations with Mark Cannella, Mike Dolce, Tony Kitsos or Betsy Miller are on a first-come, first-served basis. Early registration is advised as slots are expected to fill up quickly.
Farmers are asked to bring relevant business records, such as recent bank account statements, farm bookkeeping reports, their most recent IRS Schedule F tax form, loan documentation and other farm records.
The one location in Addison County that will host these clinics is the Farm Service Agency office at 68 Catamount Park in Middlebury. The Middlebury clinic is on March 21 and 22.
The other Champlain Valley clinics will be in Rutland (March 28 and 29 at 1 Scale Ave.) and in South Burlington (Feb. 23 and 25 at 655 Spear St.).
Other clinics will be held in Bennington (March 21-22), Berlin (March 1, 3, 8), Brattleboro (March 28-29), Morrisville (March 29-31), Newport (March 15 and 17), Randolph (March 23 and 30), St. Albans (March 22 and 24), St. Johnsbury (March 10, 15 and 17) and White River Junction (March 24 and 31).
