Attend a workshop highlighting nine methods and places to market crops and products such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, mushrooms, eggs, bee products, live animals, seeds, plants, flowers, and non-edible crafts.
This workshop DOES NOT include:
- What to sell (you should decide the crops to grow)
- Raw meats, processed or cooked foods, such things as beverages and cottage foods
- And only lightly covers Roadside Stands
This is the only workshop that covers every location (controlled by you or others) where you can sell what you grow (at home, at farmers market, on-farm, and six other places . . . along with the regulations you need to know, exemptions and unregulated crops, packaging and labeling where required, what you can delay (when getting started), dealing with the health and agriculture departments, and the basic methods and equipment for making more money selling direct.
Two identical workshops are scheduled:
Tuesday afternoon 3 pm to 6 pm — October 19th or Saturday from 2 pm to 5 pm — October 23rd
These three hour workshops are being held on a run-down, but slowly reviving farm, Orchard Otter in inland Oceanside. Specific directions will be forwarded to those who buy tickets (the nearest bus stop is 3-1/2 miles away).
Classes will be indoors with ample air-flow. Everyone participating will need to wear a mask, double fabric that covers both mouth and nose.
Classes are limited to 20 people per class.
