Let Us Help You Plant Seeds for Success with Your Farm Business

We’ve started a new series for participating farms and rural businesses in the Loudoun, VA Made • Loudoun, VA Grown program, called “Seeds for Success.” The goal of this series is to provide marketing, sales and business administrative resources to our more than 160 Loudoun-sourced businesses.

We’ve covered marketing topics include social media strategy, event marketing, financing, and video marketing hacks. We will continue to shift topics each month to meet the needs of our participating farms.

The Marketplace is for producers and buyers to make connections and develop business partnerships. Last year’s event brought a range of bulk purchase clients, including restaurants, hotels, catering services and major events. Every producer that attended made at least one sale, and the event’s total sales eclipsed $180,000.
