Description/Notes: 

Farm diversification opens opportunity and increases potential profitability! Adding specialty fruit and vegetable crops to your farm can increase profit margins several ways. Like diversifying in the stock market, engaging in more than one enterprise and adding value to what you already grow will spread profit risk, not to mention the “growing” interests in locally produced foods.

Extension educators and local growers come together to present their ideas during this one‐day program to help you increase your knowledge on specialty crops, food safety, marketing and the University services available to help you.
