Marketing will also be a key component of the workshop discussion, as labels, packaging and distributing are valuable in selling your products. Come learn how to run a successful livestock business and develop marketable products that fit the community's needs from an enthusiastic farmer who's been in the business since the 1960s.

Join us as we learn all about growing in caterpillar tunnels from farm owners, Bob Payne and Camille Abdel-Nabi. Caterpillar tunnels are easy to build structures that provide great protection from rain, wind, hail, and snow, allowing individuals to grow for more months of the year.
This on-farm workshop is Free.
Hosted by Northeast Organic Farming Association of Rhode Island at the Little River Farm: 125 William Reynolds Rd, Exeter, RI.
