Electronic forms are more convenient and much less administrative expense than the old paper system that involved printing, mailing, scanning, photocopying, more mailing, and yet more scanning and printing. Now everything goes by email.
Once a form is filled, you don't need to re-fill it next year. Simply save a new copy, make whatever changes are necessary for the new season and email it.
How to Fill Out Electronic Forms
1. DOWNLOAD and INSTALL SOFTWARE (FREE)
The latest version of Adobe Reader is very important to allow you to fill, sign, and save the form.
Install Adobe Reader: Click on the downloaded package and follow the steps of the installation wizard.
2. DOWNLOAD FORMS and SAVE WITH NEW NAMES
Open your forms and immediately save each form with a new name that includes your farm name and the year.
Example: It's 2017, you own Sunnyhill Farm, and you have downloaded "KMG Application.pdf". Click File=>Save As and save the form as "KMG Application Sunnyhill Farm 2017.pdf"
3. FILL IN THE FORMS
All the fields to fill will be highlighted. Just click into them and type. Save the form regularly as you fill it in.
Tip: use "tab" to move to the next field easily.
NOTE: Signatures are NO LONGER REQUIRED due to technical difficulties.
4. EMAIL THE FORMS
Send your forms by email:
- To: firstname.lastname@example.org.
