I wrote in a post a while ago that I was going to try print advertising. We had an advertisement placed in our local Carroll County Magazine that is free to households and are distributed to local businesses to put in their waiting areas. As a result I can say that the print advertising did work and lots of friends and neighbors told us they saw the ad. Now how many that saw the ad purchased meat from us or joined the CSA? Much less than saw the ad, but still more than enough to pay for the ad several times over. So select print advertising seems to work for our farm. If anyone local has other ideas of where we should advertise, let us know!
We are donating a 1/2 share of the CSA that you can bid on at the silent auction at the Carroll Community College Random House Book Fair on March 5th at Carroll Community College. So come out and check out the Book Fair and bid on Green Akeys Family Farm Products. Full disclosure- I am the chairperson for the event. It's a wonderful event and all proceeds are used for student scholarships.
