Event description

Description

The purpose of the Farmer / Buyer Meetup is to connect individual growers to individual buyers in a 45-minute speed networking session that can lead to sales relationships. Farmers are encouraged to bring photos of their farm, business cards, and a list of products and/or a price sheet. Wholesalers, chefs, restaurant owners, grocers, and food service directors should bring business cards as well as a list of products that they hope to source locally. There are no promises made and no contracts signed on-site; it’s a chance to open doors for future follow-up.

Questions? Growers, please direct questions to Katie Welborn with the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association at katie@carolinafarmstewards.org. Buyers, please direct questions to Amy Weaver with SC Farm to Institution at weaverat@dhec.sc.gov.


Thanks to the Midlands Food Alliance for hosting a successful model for events such as the Fall 2017 Farmer Chef Mashup and to both the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project and the Center for Environmental Farming Systems in NC for having useful information and toolkits online for hosting Grower / Buyer Meetups such as this.
