Use Simple Display Techniques for Increased Value and Farm Profitability

Learn how to improve your farm market display by investing in low cost display materials and effective chalkboard signage. 

Small farmers can gain confidence in their product display and handwriting skills and may benefit from learning and practicing market display, chalkboard lettering, and drawing techniques to use when preparing their farm market displays at farmers markets or other retail sales outlets. 

Dr. Theresa Nartea, VSU Agribusiness & Marketing Extension specialist will conduct this hands-on training to show how participants can improve market display and signage for their farm products to increase profit potential.
