Selling at a farmers’ market or direct to customers is one thing, doing it profitably is another. To help producers with that challenge, Alberta Agriculture is hosting a pair of “Pricing Principles: Moving to Retail” workshops.
The workshops will be held on Jan. 18 at the Agriculture Centre in Airdrie and on Jan. 30 at the Grande Prairie Provincial Building. The workshops will look at how to determine a break-even point, identify costs, and ways to calculate margin and net profit.
Participants will be given worksheets they can use for their operation. The all-day workshops start at 9 a.m. and cost $25 per person. To register, call 1-800-387-6030.
