FMPP USDA GRANT VENDOR SITES

Thanks to a USDA Farmers Market Promotional Grant awarded in 2019, CFM has been able to provide vendors with training to improve their marketing and advertising skills. As part of this process, we are able to build custom websites with vendors and give them the resources to maintain them. Over the last year, CFM staff, our marketing contractor, Hoot Design Co., our photographer, Drew Piester, and our amazing vendors have been hard at work putting together these incredible websites.

Hampton's Hilltop Orchard

Hampton's Hilltop Orchard is a six-variety apple orchard that sits on a hill west of Higbee, MO. Quaint as it sounds, there's a lot of hard work involved picking, sorting, washing, and bagging apples for market customers. Mike and Julie Morgan always enjoy the fruit of their labor, though, when Julie's mom, Carol, throws their apples into delicious pies, applesauce, and apple butter!
