Marketing Local Meat: a hands-on intensive for meat producers

This full-day marketing workshop for local meat producers focuses on how to achieve profitable outcomes through targeted marketing strategies. This intensive will include tastings, recipe fundamentals, strategies to close a sale, and ways to target your ideal buyers so that you can sell more meat. Plus:

  • Gain knowledge to determine market channels that meet your price point using a newly revised calculator tool developed by our partners at Cornell Cooperative Extension.
  • Learn three easy ways to sell any cut on the animal by knowing where cuts are located and their corresponding cooking techniques for beef, pork, and lamb.
  • Engage and respond to customer requests for cooking tips and help move those hard-to-sell cuts.
  • Hear from NC farmers who are finding ways to target their niche market.
