Workshop Description

Are you a farmer interested in connecting with local businesses looking to purchase local foods? If so, we have an upcoming event for you! 

We will be hosting a Grower-Buyer event this year in April! The goal of this event is to connect local businesses (ex, restaurants, grocery stores, cooperatives, food hubs, and other community organizations) interested in purchasing local food with farmers in the area and facilitate the creation of sales relationships. Growers share product lists, photos of their farm, and samples while buyers share their requirements for volume, insurance, delivery terms, and their specific product needs. We are looking for farmers producing all different types of products, including vegetables, fruits, herbs, meats, cheeses, eggs, and more! 

Join us for this interest meeting on Wednesday, March 6th from 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. to learn more about this upcoming event and how to prepare for conversations with potential buyers. This meeting will be held in person at the McSwain Extension Education and Agriculture Center (2420 Tramway Road, Sanford NC) and will also have a Zoom option. Please register using the link below if you are interested.
