We have all the functionality you need in a complete system.

Looking for a grower accounting system to supplement your current systems?

If you need grower accounting software but don’t want to overhaul your entire ERP system, we have good news: We have standalone functionality that can integrate with your existing accounting system.

NorthScope’s Grower Accounting functionality is specifically designed for buying direct from farmers.

Some features include:

Real Time Grower Balances

Use the grower dashboard for real time visibility to each grower’s posted, unposted, and net outstanding balance. Drill through from there directly to their transactions.

Grower Settlements

Process grower payments for one or more growers separately or as part of an AP payment batch.

Automated Taxes & Deductions

Easily configure all deductions that show on a ticket and all taxes whether they are deducted from the ticket or accrued on behalf of the company.

Built in Reporting & Analysis

Built in reports and inquiries that provide easy access to all your grower, field, and crop data in formats that allow you to quickly analyze all your transactions.

Correct & Re-Price Tickets

Easily correct posted tickets or re-price tickets in bulk to create new ticket versions. New versions calculate any differences and post them to the grower accounts.


Create inventory from posted tickets. Use any combination of grower, field, or crop information for lot tracing and assign quality test results and certifications to your lots.

Save Staff Time

An easy-to-use interface designed with seasonal staff in mind that gives you access to your system from anywhere.

Transactions Specific to Grower Deliveries

Grower tickets that can start with either net delivered weight or can be used to manage the entire process from initial inbound truck weight, tare weight, and grading of a sample.

Generic business software doesn’t understand your fruit, nut, &/or vegetable business, NorthScope was built for it.

Happy Fruit, Nut, & Vegetable Companies

“Our association with the principals of The Northlake Partners spans several years and various software development projects. The close relationship that developed with this consulting team enabled our company to work through some difficult and trying developmental issues.”

Joe F. Fruit, Vegetable & Nut Processing

“The NorthScope implementation for our Grower Accounting process was smooth and achieved the goals we had set. The team from NLP took the time to understand our business and their support through the process made a big difference because we didn’t have to learn everything on our own.”

Sarah Owen,  Accountant

“As our business has grown and changed over the years, we have worked with Northlake Partners and the NorthScope system to meet a number of objectives – both internal and customer requested. We’ve been able to achieve every objective with the help of the NLP team and the NorthScope platform, which we use to manage and report on our businesses from the receipt of raw fruit from the fields through to the financial statements.”
