SOUTH ROYALTON, Vt.—The Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont is holding conference on marketing for farmers who sell their products at farmers' markets, farm stands and as community supported agriculture farms.
The daylong conference takes place Jan. 8 at the Vermont Law School in South Royalton. It includes 19 workshops on topics ranging from leveraging customer relations into year-round sales to planning and measurement strategies.
