Small farmers need to be creative and innovative marketers to be successful. The best are those that cultivate community involvement in their farms and nurture face-to-face relationships with their customers. Learn from the folks at Morning Dew Farm and The Pickup Café & CSA how they’ve approached innovative and collaborative marketing. This workshop will cover some of the basics of marketing including farm stands, bringing EBT to a farmers market, Senior Farm Share, becoming a WIC vendor, low-income CSA shares, double voucher coupons, selling to food pantries, and the benefits and challenges of collective marketing. Potluck to follow at both locations.

Tuesday, June 23 – 5PM At The Pickup Cafe & CSA, Skowhegan, ME
Wednesday, June 24 – 5PM At Morning Dew Farm, Newcastle, ME
