 The CCE South Central NY Dairy and Field Crops Team is pleased to offer Farm Accounting with QuickBooks Online in 2023. By combining the theory and practice of farm business accounting into a single class, this class empowers students to set up and maintain a record keeping system that is accurate, efficient, and useful. The course is delivered in an online format, providing self-paced learning from the comfort of home.

 The training covers basic farm accounting principles, which students will apply to create and manage a financial record keeping system for their farm. We use QuickBooks Online to conduct this training, so students will gain in-depth technical experience with that software platform. The skills we teach are highly transferable to other versions of QuickBooks and other accounting systems.

 Upon completing this course, students will be able to:

         Choose the right accounting system for their farm

         Set up QuickBooks Online with a customized chart of accounts

         Manually record and classify farm business transactions

         Automatically import transactions from farm bank accounts and credit cards

         Reconcile accounts monthly to ensure accuracy

         Generate and analyze financial reports to evaluate business performance

This training is appropriate for beginner and intermediate QuickBooks users who are looking to implement a new record keeping system or enhance the efficiency and functionality of their current system. It is also a great fit for QuickBooks Desktop users who are curious about QuickBooks Online.

Course fee is $195 with a discounted rate available for farms located in Broome, Cayuga, Chemung, Cortland, Tioga or Tompkins County. If your farm is in that region, contact Mary Kate MacKenzie at to request a discount code.
