    FCBA November Meeting

    Honey and Bee Business Marketing Success

    by

    Tara Lynne Groth

    With allegedly more beekeepers in North Carolina than any other state, how do you set yourself apart? Learn strategic ways of telling your unique beekeeping story and showing your value. We'll discuss the basics of marketing vs. publicity, how to best connect with journalists and media, and where it makes sense for you to spend your time marketing. Whether you're introverted and prefer to spend your time inspecting hives, or you love striking up conversations with strangers about your bees, you'll find actionable ways of crafting the message about your bee business that work for you.  Please join us as we share a meal and learn together.

    Tara Lynne Groth speaks about natural beekeeping, agricultural marketing, and permaculture design. Before keeping bees she was a public relations director and a marketing manager. As an agro-journalist, she has written for VEGETABLE GROWERS NEWS, GRIT, PRODUCE BUSINESS NEWS, and dozens of other publications. She's been keeping bees since 2017 and became a journeyman beekeeper in 2021.
