The University of Maine Cooperative Extension released a new bulletin for farmers and food producers on the role of communication in successful marketing.

The publication includes guidelines on good communication practices for marketing and tips for applying these skills, whether selling goods direct to the consumer or business to business.

“Communicating with Markets: A Producer’s Guide” was developed by Tori Jackson, a UMaine Extension associate professor of agriculture and natural resources; Leslie Forstadt, a UMaine Extension child and family development specialist; and Abby Sadauckas of Apple Creek Farm in Bowdoinham.
