DESCRIPTION: A new 20-page bulletin from USDA’s Sustainable Agriculture
Network (SAN) offers snapshots of the many alternatives to marketing
commodities through conventional channels. Written for producers and the
agricultural professionals who work with them, “Reap New Profits:
Marketing Strategies for Farmers and Ranchers” offers practical tips on
how to get started in alternative marketing enterprises, peppered with
numerous examples of people using such strategies in the field. The
bulletin describes how to break into farmers markets, establish
pick-your-own operations and farm stands, begin entertainment farming,
open a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm, join or start a
cooperative, sell to restaurants or through mail order and the Internet.
The bulletin also lays out ways to direct-market meat and process and
add value to farm products.
