Marketing for Farms and Food Businesses: Getting Local Food to Local People
Resources and education to help you reach customers in new ways.
During the COVID-19 pandemic we saw a surge in interest in local food and more people shopping online.
Some North Dakota farmers market vendors, CSA farms, and value-added food businesses already use websites, online shops, and social media to market and sell their products. Many more may be interested but don’t know where to start. We are offering webinars and free technical assistance to help you grow your business with digital marketing.
