Target Market

Small to medium-sized farm and ranch operations that prioritize on-premises financial management without the need for cloud-based solutions.

Ultra Farms’ primary focus is to simplify tax reporting and bookkeeping activities, allowing farmers and ranchers to dedicate more time to marketing and management. This tool comes equipped with a standardized, yet customizable, farm chart of accounts, making it easier for bankers and lenders to interpret the reports.

It also offers numerous feature-filled shortcuts to streamline data entry, along with memorized entries for various vendors. Additionally, it provides automatic backup and restore functionality in case of equipment failure, and it covers essential aspects such as billing, invoicing, payroll, and enterprising, all without the need for add-on modules.

One notable feature of Ultra Farm is its offline functionality, as it does not require an internet connection. It already has Farm and Ranch accounts preconfigured, making it user-friendly and efficient.

In terms of technical specifications, Ultra Farm can run on desktop or laptop computers, without internet access or cloud connectivity, ensuring a higher level of security. It is compatible with all versions of Windows from XP through Windows 10. Moreover, it offers dynamic screen resolution to maintain large menus and data entry inputs, which is especially beneficial for touchscreen environments.

Furthermore, Ultra Farm provides the flexibility of managing up to 5 checkbooks/owners, allowing for separate entity handling within the farm operation. These owners/partners can either maintain separate records or combine them for comprehensive whole-farm analysis.

I like it pretty good. It’s maybe a little on the old fashioned side but it works for what I’m doing. I’m using Ultra Farm mostly for the reports, expenses, income, and scheduling. I haven’t really got into the inventory features.

I do like the reports. It’s very easy. You enter everything in the correct place and you can print off a report and provided your information is correct it gives you a pretty quick profit and loss.

This program looked like it served the purposes I wanted it to and price wise it was about the range I was hoping it to be in. Pricing was very good. Looked like it should fit good. I’m very satisfied that I was able to find what I was looking for.

I tried Ultra Farm but it was really complicated to get categories setup. I think if I stayed with it a little longer I maybe could’ve done it but I was using EasyFarm and I had a version that was 15 years old and I didn’t think that would be salvagable anymore. I checked with the company and could update that software and now find that is an easy software to use.

When I tried to setup my categories in Ultra Farm, I would set up one and then I would switch to another one and what I had already done wouldn’t fit with the rest of what I was supposed to do. I’m sure it was because I didn’t know how to do it. I wasn’t doing it right or something. I’m sure if someone knew how to do it, it would’ve worked better but it just seemed a little bit more than I could handle. Maybe a possibility I could’ve gotten some help from the company too.

Ultra’s Farms ability to customize to our business is incredible. Hoping the future evaluators will take the timed advice from Wally so future updates will continue to evolve with time tested Ultra Farm software. Stay Agriculture Production and Agriculture Business oriented and have the ability to link up with eid readers etc… Have the ability to keep records on per cow unit as to keep track of % of body weight weaned per cow unit/ per acre basis.

The Good…

The ability to use/type one transaction and/or business check and have all the records go in the category it needs to be in. Knowing if we ever need anything Wally’s tech support is there to help and we have used it.

The Bad…

This is a hard question but a good one. Have a 4 letter or number Vendor ID and to have the invoices part make more pages on it’s own should be a need to go over 16 lines items. That being said keep on keeping on.

The software is relatively easy to use. If you do have a problem support staff is very knowledgeable.

The Good…

Ease of use

The Bad…

I have multiple checking accounts for the farm. When you post or write checks it goes back to the beginning even tho you have other checks to write in other accounts. Not that big a deal only a few extra clicks of the mouse that I thought are unnecessary

I’ve used Ultra Farm for many years and it does everything I need for the bookwork portion of the farm business. It’s an easy to use and comprehensive program. I spend maybe 2 hours a month entering data which is easy to do. I print out detail transactions each month which makes it easy to find receipts when necessary and to verify that all monthly recurring bills/charges are accounted for.

The Good…

It’s ease of use and the support I’ve received over the years when I’ve had issues. I love the fact that when I’ve ever called them there is no machine to go through to get help. You actually talk to a person and get right to the issue.

The Bad…

When I print end of the year detail transactions I always have quite a few lines with just 0’s. I go back through the individual entries and manually delete these entries. I’m not sure why they are there but I have feeling that I might be hitting enter once too often?

I’m very familiar with the program and use it all the time for our farm bookkeeping. I do not use all the features of the software because I don’t need them.

The Good…

It is easy to input data. Made my life simpler after I started using the program to write checks.

The Bad…

I don’t like that it is not the easiest to just print a specific page from the reports

One important truth that I have learned is that, Labor does not equal progress. Labor plus skills equals progress. Ultra Farm has enabled me to learn new hands on skills. It gives me the correct information and facts when I need them for making informed decisions and conducting business meetings. For me the check writing capability is one of the best features. I have been able to learn these skills at my own pace while I was making the change from labor to management.

What sold me on the program was the budgeting capability and the ease of starting the budget. We also like the Cashflow and Profit & Loss statements.

After completing a three hour classroom workshop we started using the Ultra program. Because of the programs’ user friendliness and the classroom instruction, it saved my husband and me hours of learning time.

Ultra Farm is a complicated program that tries to do everything but does nothing well. The user interface is unintuitive and overly complicated.

The Good…

Nothing

The Bad…

The user interface is awful. It does not work well with Windows. Ultra never outgrew its MS-DOS roots.
