The workshop is aimed at training new growers to consider establishing a direct market channel for growing small fruits on the farm, including a “pick-your-own” operation, on-farm sales,  and other direct market channels, such as the tailgate market.

The presenters will be discussing blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries for the region.
