Organic Growers School 7th Annual Harvest Conference – Farm Business Workshop

September 11 @ 9:30 am - September 12 @ 4:30 pm

This is an immersive 2-day workshop taught by CEE STANLEY as part of the 7th Annual Harvest Conference. Friday’s class will be “The NC Hemp Industry” and Saturday’s class will be “Brand your Small Farm for Fundraising Success”. Each full-day workshop is stand alone! Take one or both days with the same instructor, or sign up for the second day with a different instructor to mix & match.

Hemp continues to be a promising crop ecologically, financially, and politically for North Carolina growers. Many farmers/growers are focused on the medicinal or CBD market. Get an inside look at this budding (pun intended) industry and how prospective and current farmers can position for success, especially during these challenging times. Discuss potential pitfalls in the boutique hemp industry and how to avoid them, understand the trends that have been developing, and discover specific actions you can take to get involved with legislation and regulation of this important crop.
Explore telling your farm story and stand out in the market as a beginning farmer and/or a farmer from a historically oppressed group, through the experience of Green Heffa Farms. Learn about the importance and implications of running and building a socially responsible farm business.

Time: 9:30AM to 4:30PM (both days)
