October 2012 Meeting Recap – MiFarmMarket.com
The featured entrepreneur at our October potluck meeting was Scotty Bruce of MiFarmMarket.com. Scotty and his family have run a business that supports smaller scale specialty food producers in the region with a storefront in Ellsworth and the online presence of MiFarmMarket. Scotty’s high-energy presentation included a history of the business—the original retail store in Ellsworth, growth of online sales including drop-ship sales and corporate gift basket programs, and a second retail outlet at Building 50 at the Commons. MiFarmMarket.com is growing rapidly and ramping up for the important holiday gifting season.
