Regional meetings are an opportunity for farm shops, PYO operators and Farmers’ Markets to meet up with fellow farm retailers in your area. A chance to visit another business, to network and to talk about common issues. Meetings may also include a guest speaker.
Below is the calendar of Regional Meetings for spring 2018. The plan is for other meetings to be held regionally throughout the year, dates and venues will be added and communicated via email and on the Facebook Group.
You don’t have to limit yourself to your own region, members are welcome and encouraged to attend any of the regional meetings.
Regional meetings are intended for farm shop owners/market operators to share information and support. Specific Associate trade members may on occasion be invited to intend and give a talk/demonstration. If you are an Associate trade member interested in attending one of the meetings please contact the FARMA office.
