• Summary

  • Our mission is to provide farms and operators an independent and unbiased outlet for information related to increasing the profitability of their farming operation. We will be providing farms and operators of all sizes and experience levels access to the latest trends, projections, and the tools necessary to increase farming profitability. Hosted by Tanner WInterhof (@IowaBankerman), David Whitaker (@farmlandguy), and Corey Hillebo (@corn_PorkNBeans) we will take each episode to deliver latest news, what's working for active farms, and a topic of focus each episode. Remember, if you aren't farming for profit you won't be farming for long.

    • Twitter has grown to the point where I can have a voice to journalists, politicians, some really intelligent people, and also a large group of tractor driving people too. This platform gave me the opportunity to become a speaker at different events, and I found that being on a stage and connecting with people’s brains and funny bone is a thrill unlike any other.

    Five things I want to talk about today:  


     

    1/  This article:

    https://www.progressivedairycanada.com/topics/management/hang-your-business-plan-above-the-toilet
     


     

    2/  The importance of having a BHAG written on the side of your shed.    


     

    3/  Walk before you run.  The importance of learning to listen to each other first prior to talking big picture.  The importance of focusing on short term goals.  What I do in the first 90 days prior to doing strategic planning:  


     

    A/  Get families better managing their time.  (see postcards picture):  

    B/  Getting families learning to problem solve together. 

    C/  Get families to learn to listen/respect each other.  


     

    4/  What you tell yourself everyday.  The importance of writing out goals on the blackboard.  


     

    5/  Writing down what you struggle with the most, inside your wallet.

    • Meet Kaitlyn Thornton, a 4th generational farmer, born and raised on her family’s ranch in Tonasket, Washington. 
    • The family farm started with 100 acres in the Tonasket area by her Great Grandfather, Roy. The farm eventually went to the wayside until Kaitlyn’s father shared the same passion as Roy and picked up where he left off. Buying back the family’s land piece by piece, the farm grew from just 27 acres to over 440 operational acres.
    • Our orchard is 30 minutes from the Canadian border in Tonasket.
    • She also manages the TikTok account for SugarBee apples, a proprietary variety that the family happens to farm as well. She has a passion for connecting consumers to their food source and helping consumers understand what it really takes to run a farm and how to choose a great eating apple. 
    • Kaitlyn has also started a business of her own. What started as a challenge in High School to see if she could sell 20 boxes of apricots on Facebook, has now grown to a full-blown business, Kait’s Crates. 
    • The first year she sold over 400 boxes of fruit, 500 the following year, and over 1,000 the year after. With the power of social media, everywhere. She has now earned the name “Apple Queen” in the Tonasket area

    • really interested in engines so last summer I started hanging around a diesel shop with big semi-trucks used for transportation. I learned a lot about mechanics but I also got to spend time with the truckers who hauled the fruit, so it was fascinating to hear about that side of the business as well.
