Take Charge of Your Accounting
May 31, 2013 - There are many financial challenges to farming so having the right software system is crucial for long term success.  Kevin and Renee Brown farm over 2200 acres in southeastern South Dakota and can tell you that the software plays a key role.   “We used Quicken® and Microsoft Money for years and neither provided the information we needed for year-end reports and tax preparation,” states Renee.  Most farmers will experiment with off the shelf accounting software and try to modify it for agriculture.  In most cases it becomes a frustrating experience that wastes time and money. / Other / News / testimonials / Brown(175x100).jpg

Today, Morning Star accounts for over 25% of the California processing tomato production, supplying 40% of the U.S. ingredient tomato paste and diced tomato markets, with industrial sales of approximately $350 million.
