Discover Institutional & Wholesale Markets: A Northeast Lower Michigan Workshop For Farmers
Monday, May 9, 2016 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm

Institutional and wholesale markets can be a key component of developing and expanding a successful farm business. At this workshop you'll learn the basics of selling farm products to schools and other institutions (early childhood programs, hospitals, colleges), and how to make a profit with institutional and wholesale markets as part of your market mix. You'll also hear about Hoophouses for Health, a unique opportunity to both increase year-round production AND connect with school and/or early childhood markets.
