WORKSHOP: E-commerce April 18th & May 9th
Locations Are Memphis and Jonesborough
Is e-commerce right for your farm? To help farmers answer this question, the University of Tennessee Center for Profitable Agriculture will conduct “E-commerce for Direct Farm Marketers” workshops in Memphis on April 18, 2017, and in Jonesborough, on May 9. Both workshops will be held from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. local time. Registration and pre-payment of $20 per person per event registration is required. Lunch will be provided. Workshop location information will be emailed to registered participants the week prior to the workshops. These workshops fulfill a Tennessee Agricultural Enhancement Program (TAEP) requirement in only the Producer Diversification Sectors: Fruits and Vegetables, Agritourism, and Value-Added.

The e-commerce workshops are designed to give direct marketing farms and agritourism operations an overview of the basic concepts and options for selling products online. The workshops provide information on software options for online farmers markets, online marketplaces, social media platforms, business websites, and event ticket sales. The workshops will feature presentations from direct marketing enterprises in Tennessee who use e-commerce to market their products and improve their operating efficiencies.

Funding for these workshops has been provided, in part, through the Southern Extension Risk Management Education Center and the United States Department of Agriculture.
