Market Ready Workshop
Farmers and small business owners interested in selling their products can learn ways to make their businesses safe and profitable at this local workshop. The workshop will feature sessions on each stage of food marketing including quality control, pricing, insurance, and relationship building.
Target audiences include traditional farmers seeking to expand their markets, owners of small businesses such as bakeries or dairies, and producers of value added farm products such as flour, jellies, jams, or salsa.
The workshop will make farmers and small business owners better able to compete in food markets by familiarizing themselves with business practices, quality, and similar issues. Session structure will include panel discussions with representatives from restaurants and wholesale buying institutions.
The workshop will be offered on November 29, 2012, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Allen County Office of the Purdue Extension Service. Registration cost is $60.00 per person and $30.00 for each additional member of a family or farm group. Lunch will be served.
