Selling vs. Marketing
When someone is considering transitioning to organic or is already running an organic farm, the most common things that cause trepidation on this production method are weeds and marketing the crops. Which is nothing like selling conventional.
Marketing organic is literally that, “marketing” a crop to find a buyer at the right price, location, and time. Without using a board of trade to inform the price, as a farmer, we are required to call around to businesses to see if they are currently buying, if not when they might be interested, and a price they have in mind. Taking that information to help decide if the deal is ready or needs more work. Marketing organic is a time-intensive process, even if you know whom to call. What almost can feel worse is wondering if they, the buyers you called, are going to return your call. In the meantime, one is thinking, “do I move on or wait for a maybe.”
