Banners for Farms and Farm Stands
Advertise your locally grown farm produce, goods and farm events
The once commonplace family farm is now an almost idealistic place that most people only see on a rare road trip or vacation. Nonetheless, the farm holds a special place in American culture when it comes to the way we eat. A unique, large vinyl farm banner is a great way to set a country tone and bring the feel of the farm to a special event. Whether promoting an annual sale or a weekly country market for local produce, a one-of-a kind quality banner is a great way to stand out. With custom designs from Printastic, the right choice is sure to be available. Farms with livestock can use banners posted along roadsides to promote fresh eggs, chicken, beef, bacon, and lamb. Meat from local farms always tastes fresh and delicious.
If you have a produce stand in a Farmer's Market or have multiple stands and need to buy wholesale banners online, be sure your stand gets noticed with a full color vinyl banner. You can display information about your produce such as "Organic Fruits and Vegetables,” or "Fresh Grown Fruit.” Vinyl banners can also be used to attract customers to Farmer's Markets, and can be displayed at the entrance or location of the market. You can also display the market’s dates and hours so customers know when to come and buy their produce! Seasonal farm events like berry picking, apple harvesting, pumpkin patch trips, hay rides, and christmas tree selection and cutting are good ways for farms to increase business and spread good feelings throughout the community.
Custom Farm Banners for your Roadside Stand or Farmers Market Booth
Have you ever been driving in a rural farming area and seen a handwritten paper banner advertising anything from an apple orchard to U-Pick blueberries? I'm sure you have. Sometimes the sign is barely hanging on to what it's nailed into (or scotch-taped to), and it seems the words are misspelled as often as not. Why do farmers advertise that way? Possibly because it seems to be the cheapest way to get the message out. It probably is, and the generic signage that's available in the local farmer's supply store costs a little more, and is not necessarily more effective.
It might be time to consider another option which, while not being the cheapest, is still quite reasonable - a vinyl banner for your farm: barn, roadside stand or your farmers market booth. You can personalize your vinyl sign with your farm name and logo, customize your hours of operation, or tell about the products you grow. An affordable vinyl sign can be used to display what makes your farm unique. Eventually, people in your community will begin to associate your farm with something more than a homemade or generic sign (whether cardboard or vinyl).
A Step-Up from Generic Farmer's Supply Store Signs
The new and improved signage can be quite helpful in establishing a consistent identity for your farm. People will begin to associate your image with your message and the quality of your produce. Customized vinyl banners can also point people to your roadside stand. You can put the signage in various strategic locations: key intersections or front gate as well as use smaller banners on your roadside booth. It can also be customized according to what's in season.
What Kind of Banners Should I Get for My Farm?
The cyclic nature of fruits and vegetables means that what is in season is ever changing. Therefore, it is a good idea to have multiple seasonal banners on hand for whatever may be in season: tomatoes and sweet corn in the summer, pumpkins and acorn squash for the fall and so on. Since these signs will be outdoors for long periods, it is a good idea to order the heaviest outdoor grade (16 oz.) of vinyl for these banners, as well as hemming and grommets, which will enable the banners to weather better and last longer, and not suffer damage from being nailed up and taken down. It is highly recommended, for longevity's sake, that put the vinyl signs be installed properly, on a flat surface, such as plywood, a fence or roadside signs. It is also recommended that you use bungee cords instead of ropes, as it is much more flexible and will bend with the wind.
When it comes to selling your produce and dairy products at the local farmers market, once again your customized signs and message help you to stand out from the crowd. Draping your personalized banner in front of your produce booth or table helps with sales and branding. Vinyl banners can also be used to attract customers to your location - you can display them at the entrance and at other strategic locations. Over time, you will begin to see that a small investment in customized vinyl banners for your farm will produce greater awareness of your location, produce and dairy products, as well as more visitors to your farmers market booth and your roadside stand.
