How is Windham Grows Helping Food and Agriculture Entrepreneurs Through COVID-19 Economic Fallout?
Like many, we’ve spent the last few months trying to take care of our loved ones and neighbors through the health crisis that is COVID-19.
While the best way to slow the spread of the disease is social distancing, the unfortunate economic consequence is leading to the biggest economic slowdown since the great depression.
In response to the COVID crisis and with the help of sponsors like Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs, TD Bank, The Thompson Trust, and WhistlePig we have launched a one to one business consulting program with a focus on recovery and resiliency.
The most immediate help we can offer is business counseling to rebound, recover and regain momentum. Over the last ten years there has been focus on business growth, the focus now is on adaptability to a rapidly changing market.
Most businesses are going through changes in:
• Distribution channels
• Marketing and Branding
• Financial Management
Our team of experts is providing consulting services to the larger community of food and agriculture businesses throughout the northeast free of charge thanks to our corporate sponsors and funders.
NEW: If you are a dairy farmer we can assist you with the new Vermont COVID-19 Agricultural Assistance Program.
