This interactive resource guide contains resources that are organized to help a farmer determine how direct marketing meat can work for their farming enterprise. It is intended to be a “first resource” for new and existing farmers interested in starting or adding one or more direct marketing enterprises to their farm. Navigating direct markets to achieve profitability requires deliberate planning. This guide is intended to help you get started by providing high-quality, well-organized information. The goal of this guide is to make it easy as possible for a farmer to identify and choose the information that will be most helpful.
