Rootdown Party at Emery Farm
Wednesday, July 28
5 – 8 PM
Celebrate thriving farms! Come learn how MFT’s Farm Viability program helps farms thrive, and hear what Trent Emery at Emery Farm is doing to grow his farm business. Tour the vegetable fields and pack a picnic — we’ll have Oxbow Brewing Co. Farmland beer and Oyster River Winegrowers wines, and a fun non-alcoholic option, too.
Emery 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.
A note about our 2021 events:
We’re excited to host in-person events again this summer and we can’t wait to see you at one of our farm parties! All of our events will be held outside and will be in accordance with current CDC guidelines. Attendance is limited and we ask that guests register in advance. Many of our events will have a small ticket fee to help us cover costs.
We look forward to seeing you there!
