This conference is a valuable opportunity to meet and learn from leaders in the direct farm marketing sector.
Consumers are looking for exceptional quality, safety and service from the food industry and they're increasingly interested in knowing the story behind the products they buy. If you're interested in starting or expanding a direct marketing business, this conference can provide new marketing ideas and information on emerging trends in farm business diversification including agrifood, agritourism and farmers' markets.
"The conference is a great place to see what's happening and what can happen. It's a way to take your perspective wider and look at all kinds of options."
Dora Friesen, Integrity Foods, Riverton MB
"Find your passion. Is it apples and apple juice? Then why not sell it direct, and be proud that your produce is made in Manitoba. You got a dream, go after it."
Danny Kleinsasser, Danny's Whole Hog, Stony Mountain MB
The 2014 conference has been funded in part by Growing Forward 2, a federal-provincial-territorial initiative.
