More than twenty years after Forrest Pritchard determined to make his family farm financially sustainable, Smith Meadows still sells at leading farmers’ markets in Washington DC. Forrest’s 2013 book Gaining Ground, A Story of Farmers’ Markets, Local Food and Saving the Family Farm made the New York Times Bestseller list, followed by his book Growing Tomorrow, a behind-the-scenes visit with 18 sustainable farmers from across the country. Forrest’s newest book is titled Start Your Farm: The Complete Beginner’s Guide to Establishing a Successful Farm.
Neal Gottlieb launched Three Twins Ice Cream in 2005, using his life savings and a loan from The Bank of Mom and Dad. Eventually, thanks to blind ambition and 90-hour work weeks, the California-based company’s inconceivably delicious organic ice cream is sold in nearly 4,000 locations across the United States and in Japan. Three Twins still has a booth at the Berkeley Farmers’ Market where they started. A contestant on Survivor: Kaôh Rōng, the 32nd season of the iconic reality competition, Neal will share his experience about making a business not just survive, but thrive.

Before I found this course, I was floundering and unable to get my business off the ground. I had so many questions about permits, FDA regulations, packaging, and marketing. After attending I left with much needed clarity, successfully launched my business and have seen steady growth and established a customer base that keeps me pushing full steam ahead.
If you are serious about starting/growing your Farmers’ Market business then InTents Conference is a must. Attending this conference last year was the single most important thing we did to ensure the successful launch of our start up farmers’ market spice tent business. Without the sage advice offered at InTents Business we honestly would not have had the confidence to relocate to a new city and launch our new business. We got introduced to such a talented, vibrant and collaborative community. We met our trademark attorney there. We met our commercial kitchen partners there. The friendships we forged with fellow artisans, farmers, merchants and market managers continue to shape and define our growing business. Our concept started to become a reality when just a year ago we clicked on this very link and registered to attend this one of a kind event .
