“Getting Your Product on Shelves at Your Local Food Coop” webinar was live on Zoom on March 27 at 10am where we heard from Extension Educator Lissa Radke and Chequamegon Bay Food Coop’s Marketing and Membership Coordinator Sara Beadle to learn about how to sell your food products at your local food retail cooperative. We also heard from a food business owner who sells at the food coop in Ashland, Wisconsin.

Landis and Steve Spickerman

Hermit Creek Farm owners have practiced regenerative farming  in Northern Wisconsin since 1993, growing and delivering local organic produce, pastured pork, and grass-fed lamb. They will share how they started selling products at their local food coop. 

Sara Beadle

She has been with the co-op for two and half years, after graduating from Northland College with a degree in sustainable community development. Sara does a little bit of everything at the co-op but is focused on the co-op’s community impact and marketing efforts. Or in short, she takes a lot of photos, makes a lot of posters, and plans all the co-op’s events.
