September 2022 - Farrow to Finish School
September 2022 - Marketing School
DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED.
Farrow to Finish School: During these 2 days on location we will go in depth on how Jordan and Laura built a pasture based farrowing to finish system and became one of the largest pasture based farrowers in the state of Virginia. All aspects of production and marketing will be addressed in a hands on - out on the farm setting - along with classroom aspects. Participants will leave with an interactive curriculum filled with pertinent information of the course, along with the knowledge accumulated over years of trial and error to build a scaled, pasture based, swine enterprise. This will be the premier on farm event for those looking to build a pasture based pork enterprise & market at a scale supporting a full time income.
Marketing School: This school will go in depth on how we started from scratch and have continued to grow our sales exponentially year after year. It takes work and we will provide the knowledge and useful tools so that you can succeed in your marketplace. We all know that without selling what we produce, we won’t have a viable business. So let’s be sure to have the correct information to work in a way that will create the biggest impact in sales. We will discuss our experience with Farmers Markets, Drop Sites/Buying Clubs, Online Sales, Shipping, Home Delivery, Wholesale, Restaurants, and On-farm sales. We’ll look at the ins and outs of logistics, regulations, selling by the piece vs. by the pound, carcass vs. individual cuts, websites, e-commerce, cut sheets, building your story, branding, social media presence, and so much more. It’s exciting and fun to watch your business grow (or looking at where you want to start) and we are excited to help you! This class can be taken with the Farrow to Finish School or taken by itself. Happy Selling!
