5 Timekeeping Solutions For Your Farm Business

Are you using the traditional time cards for your employees or looking for a more efficient solution to track your employee's time? Whether you have just a few employees or more than a handful, there are some simple and inexpensive timekeeping solutions that may just meet your needs. I just got back from the FamilyFarms Group conference where we, as farmers, shared information including timekeeping solutions that we were using at our farms. Here are 5 of those timekeeping soltuions. Our farm has been using Clockspot.com and has been a great solution for us. However, depending upon your timekeeping needs, you might find one of the alternatives that some other farms are using be more useful to your operation.
