Planning for Success 12/12/13
Join CAFF for an interactive, "conversation-style" workshop about essential business planning tools and techniques.
Representatives from two farms will discuss how they developed their plans for the 2013 selling season.
Hear about the farmers' successes, challenges, and lessons learned. The workshop will include Q & A and refreshments.
Each participant will receive a copy of CAFF's ToolChest: "The Farmers' Marketing and Sales Notebook."
::ABOUT THE PRESENTERS::
>>Jim Muck, Jim's Produce <<
Jim devotes a lot of energy, time and money to ensure the mineral balance for the soil on his small farm in Yuba county. The goal of this practice is to optimize the flavor and the nutritional value of the crops. Jim grows about 40 crops on the farm and specializes in great tasting, unique crops, many of which are heirlooms.
>>Katie Koch, Flor de Sol<<
Katie is an ambitious 23 year old who strongly believes, "while food nourishes our bodies, flowers feed our soul." With a desire to work outdoors and extensive experience with flowers, it made sense for her to start a new business of growing and selling fresh, locally cut flowers.
