Conference Name Baskets2Pallets: Wholesale Market Readiness for Success

Laura Biasillo


The Baskets2Pallets curriculum, written by educators across the Cornell Cooperative Extension system, highlights many areas of risk management when considering entering wholesale markets (financial, production, marketing and human). It offers real-world farmer examples and videos, hands-on experiences to relate to their own farm, and research-based information to backstop. This session will cover the highlights of the curriculum, what the over 250 farmers who have been trained across the northeast (NY, ME & RI) have experienced in changes in business practices, new markets entered, increases in profitability, etc..., and how educators can replicate this in their own communities. Those who attend will receive a copy of the printed curriculum.
