Willoughby, OHIO – April 1, 2016 – Meister Media Worldwide’s brand, American Farm Marketer®, recently posted its first online workshop event, How To Supply the Farm-to-Table Movement. The workshop is available for download as part of the brand’s on-demand education series.
“The farm-to-table movement has dramatically increased demand for locally produced herbs, vegetables, and fruit,” says Carol Miller, Editor, American Farm Marketer. “We want to help growers make that connection between their crop and this growing customer segment.”
The supply chain for locally sourced produce is still being created, but getting in the door isn’t always easy. The workshop’s panel of experts understands how the system works and offers pragmatic tips any grower can use. Each speaks to a different area of the farm-to-table supply chain:
- Mikey Azzara, founder, Zone 7, heads up a 100% local, farm-fresh food distributor that delivers daily to restaurants, grocers, schools, and more, and sources from regional farms.
- Jerry Adams, founder, Farm Link, created a regional wholesale food exchange that connects local chefs, restaurateurs, institutions, and schools with farmers and food producers.
- Sarah Tedeshi, program manager, National Farm to School Network, manages an organization that helps local food networks get off the ground and helps to improve communication with local schools.
- Vic Vanik, owner, Four Seasons Greenhouses, is a grower who helped set up a local cooperative of produce growers to supply local venues.
The workshop is available for on-demand viewing, with downloadable handouts and worksheets to help you turn our expert speakers’ recommendations into a successful action plan for your business. At only $99, it’s a real bargain! Click here for more information.
