After creating a staging farm, configuring the service applications, creating web apps, site collections, sites, masterpages, workflows, content, etc what is the best way to create a deployment farm from all this?

be leaving behind the service app configurations. On the other hand a full farm backup and restore might bring stuff I don't want
