Join us for an immersive workshop designed to elevate your farm stand game.  Learn how to make your stand visually enticing, showcasing seasonal offerings that captivate customers' attention.  Explore the simplicity and integrity of the honor system, while mastering point-of-sale strategies to maximize sales.  Discover the ins and outs of tax management and the other essential elements to streamline your operation. 

From May through December, unlock the full potential of your farm stand and reap the rewards of effective marketing strategies.  Join us and revolutionize your farm stand experience!  On hand will be visual merchandise experts, a master gardener and a representative from the Ohio State Extension office.  

Each participant will leave with comprehensive reference materials, the direct links and understanding of where and how to complete all required licenses, an understanding cottage laws, Ohio specific laws and regulations and of course,  what works and how to stay away from what does not!  The goal is to set up our participants to hit the ground running and to avoid mistakes that will cost both time and money.

The farm stand, whatever and however you make it your own, may become something or nothing but something is drawing you to this.  Why not see where it leads and allow your creativity to take it where it will grow?  This just may be the beginning of a whole new chapter or just a communal way to share the harvest.  Either way, a fun day will be had for sure.
