Agriculture at Home: Jefferson County Ag. Update

January 26, 2022

While things are slower in the winter for most operations, now is a good time to review the prior year and plan ahead. Think back to some of the conversations with customers, is there a new product or item they are wanting? Now is a good time to crunch the numbers and do some research and see if that is something you can offer this year. It is also a good time to create or update your enterprise budgets. An enterprise budget can help you figure out break even pricing on products, and if an enterprise is costing you more than you realize. Make sure to write a budget for each enterprise you have. For example, if you have hogs and cows, draw up a budget for both. Don’t forget to include things like transportation costs, fuel, advertising, and the cost of your time in your budgets as well.

Agriculture Feels At Home - JCDA Ag Update

December 17, 2021

As the new Agriculture Development Coordinator for the Jefferson County Development Authority, I bring to the table a new, fresh perspective on agriculture, and an education to back it up. I grew up local, participating in 4-H and FFA, and a member of the 4th generation to have lived and worked on our family farm. While in college at WVU, I obtained my American FFA Degree, and participated in the 2021 WV Collegiate business plan contest. Turns out, we would go on to excel in the contest with a winning idea for an agribusiness located in Jefferson County. In May of 2021, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Agribusiness Management, Minoring in Ag. and Natural Resources Law, Economics, and Environmental Economics. I am so excited to be able to come back home and share the knowledge I gained through my education with my community.
