    Wondering what kind of systems or software you all use to do your farm/homestead books. Thanks.

    I believe "Simply Accounting" will handle farm operations... it is also one of the most popular and affordable pieces of accounting software.

    cheers,

    I have a great Excel spreadsheet I found on the net to calculate poultry costs/profits. It's really thorough and you could probably use it for any animal enterprise. I had to tweak some of the formulas to make them behave better, but it works. You can pm me your email if you need it.

    I just use Microsoft Money. I have seperate accounts of the farm stuff and household stuff. Easy enough.

    I'm with Jena. Microsoft Money works fine all accounts. No need to buy fancy software.
