Direct sales give your farm great flexibility for connecting with customers and allow you to market your true value. Farmers markets, farm stands, and community supported agriculture (CSA) programs all put you in control of where and how to sell your products. The resources below will help you get started in exploring these market opportunities.
Be sure to check out ASAP’s farmers markets page for places to sell your products throughout the Southern Appalachians. Every February, immerse yourself in a full day of learning on direct sales and other farm business issues with ASAP’s Business of Farming Conference.
Find additional workshop presentations and direct sales resources on ASAP’s slideshare page.
