Build Loyal Clientele Who Will Buy Your Produce
Building your clientele may take some effort but it will be worth it once you have your steady stream of customers. Growing your customer base might take a little footwork but it can definitely be done.
We suggest you become a well-known member of your local farming community and reach out to local restaurants, grocery stores, and other business owners with who you think you can develop a reciprocal business relationship.
You should also attend as many local events and farmers’ markets as you can. Build rapport with people who you frequently see at these events to start the process of building a clientele. Remember to always be welcoming, friendly, and to provide excellent customer service.
Customers are the answer to having a successful business. Without them, your farm won’t be profitable.
