Designing Your Farm Retail Space

Killdeer Farm & Farmstand 163 U.S. 5
Norwich, VT

Farm Stands dot Vermont's country roads, but what is the difference between a good farm stand and a great farm stand?  This workshop will address several considerations of putting together a farm stand for the first time, or redesigning your existing space.  Presenters will share concepts to help you assess the feasibility of a farm stand for your property, including cost projections of building and strategies for reaching your customers.  Learn basic design principles that will help you create a warm, delicious customer experience. 

Presenters:  Rose Wilson, Business Development Consultant specializing in marketing, business planning, and business development for farms, non-profits, and small businesses.
