Farm Direct Purchasing
Farm direct marketing allows the farmer or producer to establish a direct relationship with the consumer, assuming both the accountability and the rewards. Quality agri-food products are sold directly to the consumer through a variety of channels, such as: U-Pick and U-Fish ventures, farm gate sales, farm stores, mail order, Alberta Approved Farmers’ Markets, direct to restaurant (where we assume the chef is the end-user), community supported agriculture (CSA), municipal buying clubs and e-commerce. Successful farm direct marketing involves consistently supplying quality products in a clean and customer-friendly environment.
