On-Farm Foodservice Field Day at Squash Blossom Farm

Come and Get It


Are you a farmer curious about potentially diversifying into on-farm food service such as farm-to-table dinners or a pizza farm? While public enthusiasm for culinary agritourism is increasing, the logistics and licensing of such an operation can be challenging daunting and expensive. Come and Get It: What You Need to Know to Serve Food on Your Farm, supports farmers exploring such potential ventures with information, training and support. Register below!


Each session showcases a successful story of how farms can diversify into food ventures, including:

-Detailed “behind the scenes” farm and pizza operation tour
-Informational sessions on business start-up, licensing and marketing
-Tasting lunch
-Plenty of Q&A time
-Cross-pollination opportunity with other farmers interested in similar ventures

Cost is $35; $15 for an additional person from the same business.  Pre-registration required. Registration includes a printed copy of the “Come & Get It” manual, lunch and hands-on instruction.
