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.

This workshop is free to attend. Please register here.

Presenters are:

  • Adam Montri, Ten Hens Farm and Hoophouse Outreach Specialist with the MSU Department of Horticulture
  • Abby Harper, Farm to School Specialist with MSU Center for Regional Food Systems (CRFS)
  • Colleen Matts, Farm to Institution Specialist with CRFS and co-lead of the Michigan Farm to Institution Network (MFIN)
