Event Details

3-Event Series for North Bay Farmers Exploring New Local Sales Opportunities

Are you a beginning or small to mid-scale farmer in the North Bay? This three-event series will introduce you to produce buyers around the region and offer strategies to successfully build new sales relationships with local grocers, food hubs, food processors and more! Whether you take part in one event or all three, get a head start on next season by establishing new relationships directly with buyers who care about sourcing locally and prepare for next season's plantings based on local market needs.

Event #3: Farmer-Buyer Mixer on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM. At this "speed dating" mixer, farmers and buyers will have the opportunity to meet a variety of potential partners, learn about each other's businesses, and form new business connections at an informal and fun event hosted in conjunction with CAFF and the Farmers Guild. Food and drinks will be provided.

To register contact Julia Van Soelen Kim, UC Cooperative Extension, at jvansoelen@ucanr.edu or (415) 473-2708. Events hosted by UC SAREP, UC Cooperative Extension, and CAFF/The Farmers Guild. The series is made possible thanks to generous funding from CoBank and the Farm Credit Alliance.
