Day 1: Marketing, Branding, & Promotion
Who is your customer and why do they buy? Meeting the needs and values of your customers is fundamental to creating a healthy long-term relationship — a relationship that requires attention to details from varieties, quality, pricing, communication, sequential planting, quality control, merchandising, trends, and more.
Day 2: Efficiency & Cost of Production:
Postharvest Systems & Crop Planting
Cost-effective and scale-appropriate systems are critical for a small or mid-sized farm to compete in any market. Success requires good postharvest practices to preserve quality and shelf life, as well as thought-out crop planning that includes a sequential planting/harvest plan.
Facilitated by Atina Diffley: Organic farmer & author of the 2012 award winning memoir, Sweetcorn: Organic Farming Works. FamilyFarmed’s Farmer Training program has provided workshops for more than 14,000 farmers in 43 states on best practices in farm operations, handling, food safety, and marketing.
