Erin Pirro of West Granby was named to the Hartford Business Journal’s 2014 40 under 40 list.
As a farm business consultant for Farm Credit East, Erin has been helping farmers and agriculturists, large and small, make their businesses run better since 2001. With a background in agricultural economics, her focus has been on benchmarking and profitability improvement. Good management is about choices, prioritization, and decisions. It’s her job to give them the focus they need to prepare and manage with a plan, make informed management decisions with confidence, and achieve the goals they’ve set for their operation.
Erin leads Farm Credit East’s Agricultural Retail Benchmarks program. She works with a group of 50 progressive agriculturists to analyze financial and operational metrics to set industry standards, and use that information to focus her clients’ strategic business planning. At home, her family raises and markets Connecticut grown lamb and wool products. Each spring, they provide shearing services for sheep, llamas, and alpacas.
