Description

Michael Brown has been growing berries commercially in his own backyard since 2006, and now has a thriving business supplying berries, small fruits, and their nursery plants to customers in New Jersey and beyond on just 1/3 acre. As a strong supporter of small landholders developing viable businesses in the plants, food, and value-added sectors, Michael is offering this workshop to share his model. The workshop will start with an overview of what Michael grows and how to choose the optimal variety of berries for New Jersey. The bulk of the workshop will focus on business models and marketing strategies for the small grower.

The workshop will be held at Pitspone Farm. Streetside parking is available.
