This is the last workshop of RAFFL's Collaborative Marketing Series, and will be a "working session" where farmers can explore opportunities for collaboration between each other (and potentially RAFFL). Monday, January 24th 6:00 - 8:00 pm Rutland Regional Medical Center, ground floor conference room in the CVPS Leahy Community Health Center
Please register here. The registration includes a survey to help us plan the workshop.The first two workshops introduced area farmers to a number of collaborative marketing models including:
- Farmer owned multi-farm CSA's. Here is a presentation and handbook on Local Harvest, a multi-farm CSA in Concord NH.
- Non-profit coordinated multi-farm CSA and wholesale. Here is a presentation and notes on the Intervale Food Hub in Burlington VT.
- Farmer coordinated internet sales to local customers - www.farmstandcoop.com
- Also, check out this presentation and notes abut the Windham Farm and Food Network. They are a farmer led collaborative selling to wholesale buyers in the Windham County area (using a website similar to www.farmstandcoop.com)
