The Department of Agricultural Economics at Purdue University has organized an annual Indiana Farm Management Tour every year since the early 1930s. The tour visits farms that have demonstrated highly successful farm business management practices or have unique perspectives on farm business management.
Host farmers share keys to successful farm management and explain how the management of their operations is changing in response to the ever-changing agricultural economy and the evolving circumstances of their families. They also share reasons behind recent innovations in production practices and adoption of new technology. This is an opportunity to ask questions and learn from the experiences of Indiana's best farm business managers.
This year's tour is in Howard and Carroll counties. Download the flyer.
