Food Hubs – Connecting Farmers & Consumers
We want to help grow the pie! Please join KCAA and friends for a special interactive panel discussion centered on the exciting and brave new world of the local food hub model! The success of local farms depends upon creating and reaching new markets, both retail and institutional. Our panel of experts will discuss issues of particular importance to local farmers, producers, and other parties interested in growing and being a part of a thriving local-food model.
Guest Panel Includes:
Beth Robinette – a fourth-generation rancher in the Spokane area, and co-founded LINC Foods, a Spokane food hub connecting local farmers and producers and institutional consumers.
Roni Smith – Owner/operator of The Smithshyre, helped found Kitsap Fresh, Kitsap County’s online farmers market.
Laura Ryser – Kitsap County Community and Economic Development Specialist in the WSU Community and Economic Development Program Unit.
This discussion is FREE and promises practical information, insights, and inspiration for any farmer or producer in Kitsap County hoping to grow more, sell more, and connect more with consumers eager to access the rich resource of Kitsap-grown food and farm products. Please join us!
When: Sunday, September 25th from 3pm – 5pm
