Are you looking to diversify sales beyond the farmers' markets, CSA, and farm stand?

However, successful business with wholesale buyers requires planning and preparation.

The ‘Baskets to Pallets’ virtual course is designed for farmers of all types and will be presented online via Zoom. From participating in this virtual workshop series, you will gain knowledge and skills that will help you successfully transition to wholesale marketing or to expand wholesale market sales for your farm business successfully.

'Baskets to Pallets' covers building relationships with buyers, customer management, record keeping, pricing, grading, packaging, uniformity and consistency, and food safety. It also includes opportunities for peer learning and small group discussion.

The cost for the workshop is $50.00 per person. This registration fee covers the cost of materials which will be delivered to participants electronically. FSA Borrower Training Credits are available.
