A Time to Grow
North Union Farmers Market provides an annual farmers' conference called A Time to Grow. The event is usually held on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in January. Topics include soil health, marketing, small business management, product line expansion, and much more. Plus, the potluck lunch provided by attendees makes for a wonderful and delicious opportunity to converse and relax after a long market season!
The 2014 conference featured Fred Finney, owner of Moreland Fruit Farm, President of Ohio Farm Bureau and Board member of the American Berry Co-op.
