This year's conference will consist 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!
