University of Nevada Cooperative Extension and Utah State University Cooperative Extension are co-sponsoring a workshop for growers and small food-producing companies, “Farm Products to Food Products: Increased Sales and Season Extension through Value-Added Products.” The workshop will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday at the Lifelong Learning Center, 8050 Paradise Road.

The workshop intends to give growers and producers information and strategies for developing and marketing valued-added products through direct and wholesale outlets.  Extension personnel from the two universities, local growers and industry representatives will lead the workshop.

Holly Gatzke, Extension educator in Lincoln County, said the collaboration between Nevada and Utah State Extension brings in expertise that focuses on creating food products.

“Attendees will get an understanding of how to create a great product because this can be a very complex business .”
