Cornell Cooperative Extension will present pre-season farmers’ market training to help North Country growers develop their salesmanship, labor management, social media skills and compliance with food safety regulations.
Sessions from 10am to 2pm with Cornell Cooperative Extension educators will help growers create a compelling personal story to connect to consumers. To grow to the next level, many farmers need to learn how to comply with legal requirements for adding a farm labor force. To expand beyond family labor, this is critical.
How to reap sales from Facebook and the latest information on how to meet federal Food Safety Modernization Act regulations for the prevention of food contamination are also on the workshop agenda.
The $20 cost to attend includes lunch.
