Climate Record Keeping Workshops:  Farmer-friendly point of sale software

Join in to learn from a leading agricultural finance expert and a seasoned farmer on using POS (Point-of-Sale) data for effective financial management, market insights, and strategic business decisions.

Grocery stores have used scanner data to inform marketing techniques for decades. Farmer-friendly point of sale software, such as Square, now gives farmers market vendors similar potential to track their sales. Learn how Cornell researchers used this technology in conjunction with eight NY-based vegetable production farms. Hear from farmers about how they use POS data to manage financial risks. 

Leave this session with specific takeaways and tips for your own production and sales methods.
