Kelley Goldman of Puckers Gourmet is one of the workshop presenters.

This could be interesting and helpful: The Cornell Cooperative Extension Saratoga County has a workshop for food entrepreneurs -- "Recipe for Success" -- lined up for March 23. Blurbage:

If you're thinking of making and selling a favorite recipe, or even if you already have a small food business, the presenters of this program can give you guidance. Their experience and expertise in licensing a food product, processing, packaging, marketing, pricing, and selling are an invaluable resource. The program also includes the basics of successful small business management. Current or potential food entrepreneurs are encouraged to attend.

That first link above includes a schedule of the speakers and talk topics during the day.

The workshop is Thursday, March 23 from 9 am to 5 pm at the extension office in Ballston Spa. The fee is $65 / two for $95. And the registration deadline is March 17.

Looking for other small business how-to workshops? The Community Loan Fund of the Capital Region and the Capital Region Chamber regularly offer courses.

And while we're on the topic of agricultural extensions... the Cornell Cooperative Extension is offering a backyard poultry basics class on April 1 in Greenwich. And it's free.

I've found that anecdotes from neighbors, friends, or internet "strangers" can only take you so far. If you haven't already, I strongly recommend you get out there and visit these schools during the school year, during the school day to get a feel for things. In the last few months, my wife and I have made a series of visits to our local elementary, middle + high-school. During those visits, we had the chance to talk to multiple teachers and see the kids "in action". It was very VERY telling in a lot of ways - both good and bad.
