Come join Community Alliance with Family Farmers at Tenderly Rooted (Biggs, CA) to learn from owner Kaben Kramer about building out a Direct to Consumer (DTC) market for your valued product. Topics to be covered include working out the logistics of DTC (branding, barcoding, shipping, legal requirements, etc.) to help enable your product to reach your customer base. Focusing on marketing your ecological farming practices, Cassi Crowley of NicNut Farms will also be joining us to give her talk on climate smart farming and the how-to’s on building resilience on your farm. Both will have booths set up for attendees to see packing, cross-selling, merchandising, and the like for their respective products. In addition, Grace Perry, CAFF’s Organic Certification Specialist, will provide information about organic transition/certification resources. This will be a great opportunity to learn from Kaben and Cassi, network, and learn about resources and opportunities from CAFF staff.
