Are you interested in diversifying your farm income by beginning or expanding your wholesale accounts? We work with all scales and types of food businesses to:
Link your business with new buyers
Take advantage of our wholesale database to describe your offerings; share your scale, distribution region and product availability. Our Wholesale Outreach Team will meet one-on-one with buyers to promote this database, teach buyers how and why to buy local, develop menus that highlight local food, and much more. Learn more about the benefits of joining Adirondack Harvest and how to join the Wholesale Database.
Expand your market options
While your current focus may be direct-to-consumer, learn how to add in wholesale accounts (institutions, restaurants, distributors, etc.) to diversify your income and add resiliency as well as visibility to your business.
WORK WITH YOU TO BRIDGE THE GAP
Adding wholesale accounts to your business model takes preparation. We will help you to: determine wholesale pricing, explore distribution options, obtain necessary certifications, market your brand, and develop wholesale relationships.
Reach your production quality and quantity goals
If you need to scale up production or build on consistency and quality to achieve your goals, this may mean: changing and improving production methods, building appropriate storage facilities, hiring employees, and more. We have a team of specialists who can help you with all of these tasks. We can work with you one-on-one or through a series of annual field trips to learn from other local businesses.
MARKET YOUR BUSINESS TO BUYERS AND THE PUBLIC
It is our mission to increase customer awareness around sourcing local products and we want to work with you to do just that. We utilize social media marketing, newsletters, press releases, and meaningful events to build awareness and support for local businesses. We will introduce new content to increase demand for local food in local restaurants and institutions, while working with your business to supply the local buyers with products.
