Growing veggies, adding some value and putting them on wheels pretty much describes Tom’s business model at Sweet Harvest. It’s a savvy response to consumers who are craving experience, along with their food. Events. Fairs. Festivals. Pop-ups. That’s where the crowds are, and Tom takes his food truck-based business to them by partnering with breweries, schools, arts groups. The byproduct of this is continual exposure to new customers who is Tom is now turning into buyers of his produce. Sweet eh? For farmers, adapting a more nomadic view opens up more opportunities and possibilities to collaborate and brand building, and Tom will guide us through some of them to get you thinking about new ways you can meet your market.
