Our partnership with Show Me Hemp Association (and other interested associations, organizations and institutions) will allow us to continue to provide our conference attendees with dynamic and relevant programming as the agriculture industry evolves, despite the challenges presented by the events of 2020.

The Show Me Hemp Conference will be held Wednesday, February 3rd and will consist of programming focused on opportunities for growers and businesses in the hemp industry to network and share ideas. Wednesday evening will also feature a special "One Voice 4 Ag" reception with MO state legislators, so that you can share what policy matters most to you as an organic or specialty producer. 

The 13th annual Mid-America Organic Conference will be held Thursday, February 4th and Friday, February 5th. There will be experienced speakers, notable workshops and roundtable discussions within a more intimate setting than our usual conference. Programming will be organized in a single track within our Exhibit Hall in the Magnolia Ballroom, with break out sessions and receptions held upstairs in the Bella Vista room. These changes will maximize our networking opportunities and keep you from missing out on your favorite presenters.

With these new changes, there are many ways to join! You can choose to register for all three days, each individual conference or join us virtually. Find links below to guide you to registration!

MOA will be making adjustments for our 2021 conference by limiting participants in person, providing physical barriers between vendor booths, adhering to our location's covid safety guidelines and providing virtual alternatives. Sign up for our mailing list to receive the latest updates or send us an email at info@moaorganic.org.

Thank you for your patience during these uncertain times!

With a mission to inspire and empower organic and regenerative farmers, growers, and ag-trepreneurs, MOA has organized 2-DAYS of Programming for farmers & growers, large and small.

The 2021 Mid-America Organic Conference consists of two days filled with national speakers, educational workshops, and networking opportunities to connect farmers across the state. The goal of the conference is to help educate farmers and producers on the value and importance of learning organic principles of production for specialty crops that preserve natural resources and add value to their farming operations. We also strive to educate beginning and existing farmers on successful business practices, including methods of direct marketing, wholesale marketing, and value-added marketing of organic and sustainably grown specialty crops.

Farmers and growers of all experience levels are invited to join us for these two days of learning and growth! Our attendees consistently tell us how much they value the opportunity to speak and learn with other producers in their industry, region and specialty.

Did you know that MOA is a membership organization? Its not-for-profit status is dependent on members being involved in running the organization. As a member, you are a voting member, and you have the opportunity to serve on the Board of Directors, and to help craft the message and value of the organization.

MOA Membership is included in this year’s registration! Register for all three days or both days of the MOA conference and your Annual Membership is paid in full through December 2021. Attend the annual meeting to learn more and vote!

A new era is dawning for MOA, and we are working to add more value and extend more educational opportunities to you, our members, as well as to others who are interested in clean food, a healthy-agricultural community, keeping agricultural land in agricultural use, and in providing a sustainable livelihood for growers, farmers and those who provide services to them.

We are continuing to gather speakers and develop program content as we near the 2021 Mid-America Organic Conference.
