and Hospitals".  This webinar is part of an ongoing MSU Extension Beginning
Farmer Webinar Series.  The series is designed for beginning farmers, but we

hospitals and schools. Topics will include: food safety requirements for
institutional markets, wholesale pricing, strategies for communicating with
food service directors, selling through a distributor or food hub, and
available resources to help get you started.  


Questions and discussion will take place through the webinar 'chat'
function. Supporting written materials will be available for download during
