Farmers' markets are one avenue for selling your products.

Marketing

You have a great product. Now you need a little help deciding where to sell it, how it should be presented, and how you can communicate with customers so they grow to love your farm. Marketing experts on Cornell's South Central NY Regional Ag Team are housed at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County but are available to help farmers in the five-county region that the team serves.

We can help local farms:

  • Understand and meet customer needs
  • Communicate better with customers
  • Improve marketing strategies
  • Choose and evaluate market “channels” (Farmers Markets, CSA, Restaurants, Agritourism, Wholesale, etc)
  • Create an attractive display at market
  • Create business promotional materials (brochures, business cards, websites, etc)
