LANCASTER, N.H. — “Why Farm Markets Need Great Merchandising and Marketing Matters” will be held July 23rd, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the UNH Extension Coös County office, North Country Resource Center, 629A Main Street, Lancaster, NH.
July is one of the busiest months of the growing season for harvesting, prepping for the market and selling agriculture products on or off the farm. This two-part workshop will reflect upon what has been done so far, what’s working (or not working) and what changes can still be implemented this season to increase sales. These workshop sessions will also provide a jump start for developing marketing plans during the slow months of the year.
From 10 a.m.-11:30 a.m. UNH Extension Food and Agriculture Field Specialist Nada Haddad of Rockingham County will discuss merchandising and marketing tips. From 12:30 p.m.- 3 p.m. Nada will be available to meet one-on-one with individual farmers who have questions pertaining to their marketing efforts.
There is no cost to attend either session but registration is appreciated for the morning and required for the afternoon to schedule a 60-minute meeting with Nada. Come as you are from the field and take a break from the outdoors to talk marketing matters! To register, e-mail Nada Haddad at Nada.Haddad@UNH.edu or call her at 603-679-5616.
