The Baskets to Pallets Teaching Manual (1st Edition) contains a series of presentations, discussions, activities, videos and other teaching resources that an agricultural service provider can adapt to meet the needs of local farmer audiences. The Manual incorporates two Case Study Farms, based on an actual produce and livestock farm currently operating in NY. Over the course of the Training, various Units examine the two farms from different angles, enabling trainees to understand real-life management, production, and promotion strategies through the lens of ‘wholesale’ marketing.
