Webinar: Managing Diversified Food & Farm Businesses

December 5, 2023

How do you balance a business that includes: managing a diversified farm, wholesale accounts, specialty food production, farmers market participation, never mind the usual aspects of running a business like marketing and overall financial management? Hannah Blackmer of Field Stone Farm and Jennifer Vascotto of Trenchers Farmhouse discuss how they integrate the various aspects of their work and offer their perspective on lessons learned and advice for others interested in developing their own diversified food and farm business.
