AUSTIN -- The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will present its MarketReady Training Program for area farmers, ranchers, and food producers Tuesday, April 23, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the AgriLife Extension office for Travis County, located at 1600 Smith Road in Austin.
“The MarketReady Training Program addresses the market-development risks and relationships small farmers and ranchers must manage as they seek to develop supplier relationships with restaurants, grocery, wholesale, and food-service buyers,” said Daphne Richards, AgriLife Extension agent for Travis County and program coordinator.
The training would help small-scale and other food producers learn effective practices for approaching and selling to businesses such as restaurants, caterers, and grocery stores or chains.
The $35 registration fee covers lunch, refreshments, and all training materials.
Attendees should register online at https://agriliferegister.tamu.edu or call 979-845-2604. On the registration site, use the keyword “market” and Austin for the location.
For more information, call 979-847-5805 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
