Learning Series: Selling at Farmers Markets and Craft Fairs

Loading Events

Introduction
Value added products are the mainstay of many bee businesses. By adding additional
ingredients, or by simply refining products found in the hive and marketing them, you can
vastly increase the number of products that your beehives produce. Getting into farmer’s
markets and fairs may seem daunting at first, but with a good mentor and knowing how to
reach out, you can put your product out at many different markets. There will be a guest
lecturer and a demo to show how to make some value-added products.

After this lecture, you will have a better understanding of:
– Commercial marketing vs farmers marketing/direct sales
– Cottage Food Laws
– How to get into a farmers markets and craft fairs
– What types of products you can market from your bees
