Diversify Your Income Streams with Retail at IGES

Retail is incredibly important for farmers today, as it provides a crucial channel through which they can sell their products directly to consumers. Retail sales offer farmers the opportunity to diversify their income streams, reach a wider audience, and secure a stable market for their products.

Reasons Why Adding Retail is Important for Your Business

Increase revenue at IGES

Additional Revenue

Selling gifts and souvenirs can provide additional revenue streams, which can help to supplement your primary source of income. This can be particularly important during times when farming revenues may be lower, such as during the off-season or in years when crops are not as successful.

Create a positive customer experience by adding products to your store found at IGES

Customer Experience

Retail enhances the overall customer experience and creates a more memorable visit to the farm. Customers may appreciate the opportunity to take home a memento of their visit or to purchase unique items that they can’t find elsewhere.

Diversify your inventory at IGES

Diversification

Adding a gift shop or souvenir store to the farm can diversify the business and attract new customers who may not have visited the farm otherwise. This can help to increase the farm’s exposure and reputation, as well as create new opportunities for marketing and branding.

Branding and marketing

Branding and Marketing

Gifts and souvenirs can also serve as a form of branding and marketing for the farm. Customers who purchase these items may use them or display them in their homes, which can help to spread awareness of the farm and its products to a wider audience.
