REFRESHER COURSE: Building a Healthy Snacks Business

 

Prepared foods are a big opportunity for SPIN

Prepared foods are a big opportunity for SPIN farmers, and here’s why: They can be sold by others while you farm. They expand your sales channels. They provide more nutrition, more convenience, more profit.

There’s also growing demand. In just the last few years, snacking has evolved from mostly nutritionally void treats to an essential part of daily diets, with many people eating on the go, in smaller portions, at various times of the day.

So we are featuring this session for the month of March to give you a crash course on starting a fresh-from-the-farm prepared food business from a SPIN farmer who’s done it: Licensing. Sourcing ingredients. Investments. Time Commitment. Labeling. Markup. Time Management. Revenue potential. Keeping the farm going.

See how Cathy LeValley used her 1,996 sq. ft. SPIN farm to launch a food business that keeps her customers fed while she’s back at home farming. It’s the 7/12/18 session under Farm Tour Member Meetups. Log in 24/7 to get up-to-speed on the risks, rewards and regulations on valued added products here.

(it’s great background for our next Instant Learning Session with Tim Toews who will explain his plan for launching his own hot sauce brand, as well as an update from Cathy on how her product line and business has expanded.)
