Methow Made makes it easy for people who love the Methow Valley to experience local products and flavors and to support the local economy. Methow Made farmers, artisan food and beverage producers, artists and craftspeople make their products with at least 75% of the ingredients and/or labor from right here in the Methow Valley.
Methow Made is a marketing program that gives Methow Valley farmers and artisan food/beverage producers exposure to customers who love the Methow Valley and want to support our local farm economy.
Interested in participating in the Methow Made program?
Methow Made includes retail displays, a website, social media, advertising, public relations and events. The program is designed to help producers and retailers improve sales by:
a) Promoting Methow products and agritourism opportunities to consumers in targeted regional areas
b) Developing producer marketing skills
c) Increasing local and regional retailer presence of Methow Valley goods.
Who can participate as a producer?
The program is organized by product. As long as a product meets the criteria laid out in the application it will be listed on the Methow Made website and other marketing materials. The program is a partnership between TwispWorks and Methow Valley businesses. Criteria for participation were created through a community stakeholder process.
What does it mean to participate?
Participating producers choose the level of exposure they want–a product can be listed only online, only in local publications, only on social media, etc., as desired. Producers may use the Methow Made symbol on approved products, but are under no obligation to do so.
Acceptance into the program does not guarantee placement in any retail location; it is up to retailers and producers to negotiate purchase and placement of any goods.
Who can participate as a retailer?
There is no cost to participate as a retailer. To learn more about becoming a retail partner, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (509) 997-3300.
