Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Acadia farmers’ meeting focuses on marketing
Bangor Daily News - 3/23/2009.
By Bill Trotter – Marketing was the main focus of the first-ever Maine Farmers’ Market Convention, which was put on by the Down East Business Alliance. More than 80 people attended the convention on Friday and Saturday to learn how to market their products and themselves, and about more-technical issues such as electronic monetary transfers and licensing for food production and sales.
