Business Planning Assistance

The Division of Agricultural Resource Development administers the NxLevel farm business planning course, a nationally acclaimed curriculum that provides education and training for employment in agricultural pursuits. This curriculum complements many other business planning courses by focusing on how to use the business plan to better manage the overall farm business. NxLevel training has introduced many farmers to loan programs, including our Agricultural Marketing Loan Program. The Division can partner with local agencies and organizations to provide the course anywhere in Maine. For further information, please contact John Harker at john.harker@maine.gov at (207)287-7620.
