WHAT WE'RE DOING
We seek to help farmers market themselves more effectively by tapping into the enormous potential at their fingertips: the images, themes, and stories drawn from their own farms. Farmers, we want to help you use your assets!
We're offering Marketing Lessons for farmers that include tips on how to best tell your story through Instagram, Facebook and Press releases.
We've received a grant from the Farmers Market Promotion Program to provide two free services: farm logo development and assistance creating a marketing video. The deadline to apply for the second round of these free services is March 15, 2016.
If you'd like to hire someone for these services, let us know! We can connect you directly to some great videographers in Louisiana, Georgia, Pennsylvania, New York, and Maine, and some logo designers who do excellent work remotely from New York City and Portland, Oregon.
Our in-house designer, Aly, will work with you to design marketing materials that reflect your farm's brand. We'll design it, and you'll print it from one of our suggested printers.
Our design services include:
