Alabama Extension Thinks Outside the Box with Opportunities for Producers
With the expansion of juiceries, wineries, and craft beer booming in the United States, producers have the opportunity to think outside the box when it comes to distribution.
Alabama Cooperative Extension says creating and marketing value-added products can boost farmers’ operation profits by targeting businesses like wineries or creating additional products like ham, salsas, and syrups. And these creative outlets also have benefits to our food system – many of these market areas use fruit that may be unsellable or leftover due to appearance at a farmers’ market.
