We have created this blog categorization system as a way to organize and preserve the daily blogs written about our farming life. We hope you find this categorization system helpful.

The following blog entries are all related in some way to the topic of farm marketing. They may cover any one or more of the following topics:
farmers markets and CSA's
customer relations
niche marketing
advertising campaigns
certification
product labeling
value added products
Or they may simply be essays about some other aspect of farm marketing. We hope you find something useful here, or at least some pleasant reading.

If there is some way we can improve our archiving system, please Contact Us and we'll take your recommendations into consideration.
