Growing Your Produce Business Workshop: Opportunities for Northeastern NC Farmers

December 13 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Are you a farmer in northeastern NC who is interested in launching or growing your wholesale produce business? This workshop is for you! Come learn about emerging markets for produce in our region and how you can get your farm ready to supply those markets.

Topics covered will include information on what regional produce buyers are looking for, GAP certification requirements, season extension opportunities, financing assistance, and other resources available to help grow your produce operation. As part of the program, Rural Advancement Foundation International (RAFI) will provide information about their Agricultural Reinvestment Fund grant opportunity—farmers can apply for up to $11,000!

The event is FREE, and a locally-sourced supper will be provided by our co-sponsors. RSVP IS REQUIRED! Please follow this link to register, or call (252) 536-7274.
