What Others Say
"Richard Wiswall has helped my business become more sustainable. Both his workshops and his book have enabled me to hone my skills in financial analysis, record keeping and all-around professionalism. His firm belief that farms can and should be financially successful provides motivation and encouragement for all of us who make our living on the land."
Wellspring Farm, Marshfield, VT
"It has been such a pleasure working with Richard over the years. Not only is he knowledgeable about the business of farming, he tempers the hard facts with humour and enthusiasm. Non-judgmental and generous with his time, we would highly recommend him to anyone wishing to start or fine-tune their farming venture."

"Richard is an excellent speaker and knows the ins and outs of farm finances. The examples we worked through as a group were great!”

Richard Wiswall has long had a practical, effective, and user-friendly approach to business management for diversified farms. He’s shared this approach by consulting with individual farmers and through his excellent book aimed at organic vegetable growers. As the Extension vegetable and berry specialist for Vermont I have seen first-hand how his advice has aided the success of farms, from start-ups to those with lots of experience. In person and on paper, Wiz has a lively style that engages farmers in thinking clearly about a topic that is at the core of farm viability.
