As farmers and food producers we know you wear many hats and have a variety of tasks to accomplish on a daily basis. From communication strategies to technical assistance with technology, attendees will be armed with the resources and know-how to be more successful with the time and resources they dedicate to marketing and ultimately, sell more product. Each session will involve a one-hour presentation, followed by a one- hour panel discussion with fellow producers who will share their personal tricks and triumphs.
Each of the scheduled workshops will take place from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the Washington County Fairgrounds. The workshops will be led by CCE’s two new agriculture marketing specialists: Jessica Ziehm and Rebecca Breese. Pre-registration is not required but highly encouraged.
