Producer Business Models were developed in partnership with The Carrot Project and thanks to support from The Island Foundation
About the Producer - Business Models
Looking for some insight into selling direct to buyers in Southeastern MA and Rhode Island? Check out the Producer-Business Models to learn the ins and outs from three small-scale local examples.
There isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution for sales and marketing. The goal of these models is to share what is working for some farmers based on their goals, operations, and capacity. These models show three different farms with three very different business goals and business plans.
