Make Money with Farm to Table Dinners

If you have fresh, local food and a beautiful farm, you also have an ideal opportunity to generate additional income to diversify your revenue streams. Farm to Table dinners are an excellent way to build your customer base, gain brand loyalty, highlight your operation, and earn extra revenue.

In this presentation, NCAT Sustainable Agriculture Specialist Eric J. Fuchs-Stengel details how to organize a Farm to Table event — from finding a chef and deciding what silverware to use to processing payments and marketing your event.
