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.
