Farm Market Bus Tour

Monday, December 4, 2017

The tenth annual Farm Market Bus Tour will be held the day before the Great Lakes Fruit, Vegetable & Farm Market EXPO opens. Last year, 160 participants boarded four buses for the full-day tour. New markets and different areas of Michigan are visited each year. The tour is sponsored by Fruit Growers News and Vegetable Growers News in cooperation with the Michigan Agritourism Association.

The Farm Market Bus Tour is a great opportunity to network with other farm marketers, while learning how some innovative farmers get their products onto the tables of consumers using creative and unique marketing strategies. There will be interactive discussions while traveling on the buses to share information, which will be moderated by Michigan State University Extension educators.

The cost of the tour is $155 per person. This includes lunch and snacks. If you register after November 12, the cost is $179 and subject to availability. Registration is limited. Registration will open on September 25, 2017

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to see and learn about new possibilities for your market.
