Learn about the different options available to you for selling direct to consumers from your farm – from u-picks to farm stands and seasonal sales centres. Discover the behind-the-scenes considerations that help to make the consumer experience memorable and your business successful: parking and traffic flow, signage, scales, cash handling systems, washrooms, and more.
