From gate to plate Exploring alternative income streams

27 January 2014

Farming Connect are organising an event to encourage farmers to explore alternative income streams available to them by diversifying in to other food and drinks projects. The main speaker will be Lori Whinn, Director of Rural Foodies, a specialist mentoring, marketing and branding company working with artisan producers. The event will ignite imaginations and share information about support available to develop an idea, investigate new markets and establish marketing strategies. There will also be an opportunity to taste local produce as two successful companies tell their story.


There will also be an opportunity to hear from Lowri Davies, Cywain Development Manager for the region. Both Cywain Agriculture and Cywain Fisheries projects facilitates collaboration between producers, processors and retailers and provide support for developing and adding value to primary produce and advice on finding new markets.


The event will be held on Thursday, 6th February at The Dragon Hotel, Montgomery, Powys, SY15 6PA and will begin at 7:30pm. Farming Connect are planning to organise more events on this topic over the next few months. You can find details of new events onwww.menterabusnes.co.uk/farmingconnect


It would be very helpful to the organisers if farmers who are interested in attending would let them know in advance. Please contact Einir Davies on 01970 636297 or einir.davies@menterabusnes.co.uk to book a place.
