Enterprise Budgets - Planning for Profit

Budgets included in this section are historical. The information is provided as a tool for projecting costs and returns for B.C. farm enterprises and as a general guide for planning individual farms. The sample budget should be used as a guide only and should not be used for business analysis without adjustments to current prices for inputs and products. Each farm should develop their own budget to reflect their production goals, costs and market prices.
