One-on-One Farm Leadership Coaching

One-on-One Coaching for Small Producers

Whether you run a large or small farm, it can be lonely at the top. Who do you turn to when you have pivotal decisions to make or issues to handle? Your various teams, as well as the health of your business, are relying on you—but who can you rely on?

Our one-on-one coaching is for those who spend much of their days stressing over essential business matters and wishing they had a partner. Kitchen Table Consultants offers leadership coaching and advising tailored to your company’s needs and goals.

But why work with a coach rather than simply bring on a vested business partner?

Think of KTC as a “partner without equity” in your business. You will enjoy regular meetings and access to your coaching team day or night to talk through whatever is holding you back and keeping you up at night.

So if you know where you want your farming business to be, but you’re not quite sure how to get there, KTC will help you bring your vision to life.

Please Note: Our coaching services are now available in Spanish! If you and your team require Spanish-speaking support, you will be paired with our fluent and knowledgeable team members.

Our Approach

Here’s a peek at what life is like when you choose KTC as your coach:

Specialized Bookkeeping for Farm Businesses


Are you looking for a partner who will ask the difficult questions and give the difficult answers? That is what KTC is all about. We push because we care—and because you need accountability. At the same time, we offer a critical eye without judgment. We are committed to open, honest communication and will talk through every dream, idea, goal, and issue until we resolve it.

Personalized Small Business Bookkeeping


Every business is different. We do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, you will enjoy customized strategies and solutions based on your company’s current situation and where you want to be. Think of your KTC coaches as members of your team, helping you in the specific areas you need the most.

Grow Your Small Farming Business


There is nothing more rewarding to us than seeing our coaching clients step into their own and watching their businesses take off. We will give you the tools and knowledge necessary to continuing growing and working on, rather than in, your business. You’ll end up with appropriate, clear, achievable metrics that you and your team understand how to use.

Step-by-Step Process

Are you ready to get started? Here’s what comes next:

Step 1: Complimentary Consultation

We’ll kick things off with an initial consultation to get to know each other. This discovery call will give us a high-level look at your farm, how it’s performing, what is working well, and what could use improvement.

Step 2: Business Review & Analysis

Next, we will take a closer look at your operation. We will assess areas to focus on to help you meet your goals. Where are your strengths and weaknesses? Where are your growth opportunities? Perhaps you need to rethink your distribution strategy or restructure your team. We will come up with a plan for the most significant opportunities and issues we dig up.

Step 3: Ready, Set, Grow!

Depending on your goals, we will prioritize projects and present you with a coaching proposal along with an outline and schedule. If you like what you see, we make it official, and the hard work (and beautiful growth) begins!
