Celebrate farm viability! Come learn how MFT’s Farm Viability program helps farms thrive, and hear what the farmers at Ripley Farm are doing to grow their farm business. Take a guided tour of their vegetable fields and learn about their organic CSA! Snacks by Spruce Mill Farm & Kitchen. Cash bar with beer from Bissell Brothers and wine from Oyster River Winegrowers. Free & open to all! No dogs, please.
Ripley Farm recently completed MFT’s Farming for Wholesale program, which helps farmers participate in, or scale up for, wholesale markets through ongoing farm business planning assistance. Farming for Wholesale connects farmers with businesses, financial, and marketing advisors, as well as other farmers, to hone financial record keeping, analyze scenarios for scaling up their business, and write a strong business plan that reflects their goals. Farmers who complete Farming for Wholesale are eligible to submit their business plan to compete for an implementation grant of up to $50,000.
