Farm2Food Accelerator Info Session #2

About this Event

Join NASDA Project Director Dr. Lisa Benson and Project Coordinator Katie White to learn more about the forthcoming Farm2Food Accelerator!

The Florida Farm2Food Accelerator supports women farmers (including ranchers, producers, growers, fisherwomen, beekeepers and other related agriculturalists) by providing practical tools and knowledge to increase income stability and resilience to unpredictable market events.

Research shows that value-added production, the act of processing raw agricultural goods into finished products such as food or beverage products, can increase farmers’ profitability, increase shelf stability of products, expand the market season, increase farm visibility, and allow them to enter new markets.

The Farm2Food Program immerses women in a community of experts and peers while you work through modules that take the uncertainty out of diversifying your production. The best news: all the tools and knowledge can apply to your current production.

PARTICIPANTS CAN EXPECT

• To be connected to a community of women farmers and local experts

• A unique opportunity to learn how to launch a food or beverage product

• To ask questions and get answers from experts and peers though an online discussion forum

• To participate in live weekly discussions with experts and local guest speakers

• Hands-on experience in researching and understanding the commercial opportunity of your product

• To gain new skill sets and knowledge related to lab testing, packaging, pitching to buyers and more

• One-on-one marketing assistance, such as company/product logo design, brochure creation, and other marketing materials
