Gaining and Retaining Customers
from Farm Events
Hosting visitors to your farm for events such as harvest dinners, customer open houses, festivals, or a private event may seem like a great idea, but will it be worth the return? At this workshop Marie Anselm will share the results of a NE SARE study that tracked farm event customers over a two year period to determine how farm events help farms gain and retain customers.
