Farm Stand Resources

MDAR offers farms with farm stands marketing materials and resources to common questions

Farm stands across the state are one of the most common way for consumers to find locally grown foods. Many farmers have transitioned from wholesaling to retailing via farm stands, PYO, CSAs and farmers' markets. These options, which eliminate the middle level cost of distribution, gives the farmer the opportunity for higher profits.

Location is one of the most important factors for a successful farm stand. The general public favors easy access and ease of shopping.
