The annual Direct Marketing Conference provides networking and educational opportunities for farmers’ market managers and vendors, and farmers marketing through Community Supported Agriculture and farm stands.
The 2013 Conference will feature five speakers inspired by the TEDTalks format of brief but excellent presentations on "ideas worth spreading", the VTFMA annual meeting, and twenty workshops for farmers, marketers, and farmers' market managers.
Beginning farmers can sign up for a coaching session with the Vermont New Farmer Network. These sessions will help you create a strategy for your farm business focused on your goals. Limited time slots available.
