No problem. Cabbige was designed to be flexible and only needs estimates, not exact numbers. Cabbige just needs to know if you harvested 20 lbs, or 200 lbs.

10. We offer Pick Your Own. How do I enter those sales in Cabbige?
You can enter pick your own sales as a sale record at your farm stand. If you want to track your pick your own crops separate from other crops sold at your farm stand, you can create this as a separate channel. If you have any questions, we would be happy to walk you through this. Contact us at email@example.com.
11. I sell my products in 5 ounce containers, 4 inch, and 8 inch pots, and by the 1/2 lb. How can I enter these measurements in Cabbige?
No problem! When you create your crops in Cabbige, add the measurement you use in the name field, and when you select the unit of measurement, select "Other". In your reporting and analytics, you will be able to see the name of the crop and the unit of measurement you use. If you need help, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
12. We sell blueberries both in quarts and pints. How do I enter these crops in Cabbige when I have to select one unit of measurement?
Create two entries for blueberries in Cabbige, one for pints and one for quarts. This will allow you to track the sales separately and receive distinct price recommendations. When you are entering your harvests, split the harvest amounts between blueberries (pints) and blueberries (quarts), a rough estimate is okay. If you need help, contact us at email@example.com.
13. Sometimes we buy in produce from other farms, how do we track that?
Track these crops just like any other crop. When you create the crop in Cabbige, enter the quantity you expect to buy for the expected yield. Your baseline prices should be the prices you charge your customers for the crop. When you purchase the crop, enter the purchase as an inventory record to update you inventory. This will allow you track your prices, inventory, and revenue. The harvests by channel report can be used to see how much is being sold (compared to what you buy) so that you can adjust the quantity you are purchasing if you need to.
