NAFDMA Best Brochure

March 14, 2005

Boston, MA – The Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard was awarded first place for their full-color brochure at the North American Farmers’ Direct Marketing Association’s (NAFDMA) annual conference. "This year competition was stiff. Many operations like ours across North America have invested in a quality printed promotional piece for their family farm," said Bill Michaels, co-owner of the Mill. The conference attracted more than a thousand farmers from the United States, Canada and England for a week of tours, seminars and trade shows. The program is designed to educate participants on the advantages of agri-tourism and farm direct sales for keeping the family farm alive. Bill states that "The Mill has been attending the NAFDMA conference since 1995. We believe that it is our best tool for making the Mill what it is today. We have learned a great deal from both our fellow farm marketers and the professional presenters booked by NAFDMA." The Mill’s winning brochure, designed by Kurt Pelton of Sloansville, has an annual print run of more than 50,000 distributed regionally to attract visitors.

The Mill will re-open May 21st for its 149th season with the introduction of new items such as freshly baked breads, gourmet dessert syrups and a larger variety of grilling sauces and marinades. On April 9th the staff and Mill friends will board a motorcoach for a day-trip to New York City to experience merchandising and marketing techniques used by New York’s specialty food retailers. Mill customers are invited to attend and can receive an itinerary by calling the Mill. The Mill is also filling many team member positions for the coming season in foodservice, production and retail. Candidates are encouraged to contact the Mill’s personnel manager, Lin Molloy, by phone at 607-547-9692 to set up an appointment.
