How Does AgConnect Impact Agriculture?


"Thank you for providing a wealth of information that helps promote agricultural efforts in our communities!"



40 farmers' market managers gathered at CCEDC Monday for professional development and networking as part of the 3rd annual Farmers' Market Manager Conference. Brian Moyer and Carla Snyder of Penn State Extension coordinated a full day of quality presenters including two panel discussions - one of experienced farm market vendors in what they look for in a market, and another of experienced farm market managers on what makes a successful market. Market managers from as far as Ligonier and Carlisle joined us for the day. 

Retail Meat Merchandising Workshop

Tuesday, April 22

Chester County Economic Development Council

737 Constitution Drive, Exton  

Pricing For Profit: Understanding your cost of production, product yields, and how to price your cuts of meat.


The Cash is in The Carcass

Once we decide that an animal is ready for slaughter, our marketing meter kicks in. Do we fully understand our carcass yields? What is the yield from carcass to cuts? Do we really know how profitable our marketing channels are? This could be where your profits lie.

Producers will learn:

  •  How to track your cost of production
  •  How to price your individual cuts
  •  Yields from carcass to wrapped cuts
  •  How to assess your marketing channels to understand which markets are your most profitable

This program will be funded in part by AgConnect through a grant from the PA Department of Labor and Industry and the Chester County Workforce Investment Board.
