The Utah Farm now Farm and Food Conference (UFFC) is an educational and networking hub for farmers, ranchers, foodies, retailers, activists, researchers, and educators. The conference features pre-conference events, a farm tour, workshops, keynote speakers, exhibitors, vendors, a mixer, live entertainment, a seed exchange and organic local culinary fare. The Utah Farm Conference is organized by Red Acre Center, a 501(c)(3). We pull together a group of farmers, ranchers, advocates, chefs, and consumers to make this conference happen. The 3rd annual UFC is expected to draw over 250 attendees and will sell out, limited by room capacity. Attendees are predominately from Utah, but with 8 states represented in 2018. UFC brings together internationally acclaimed keynote speakers and local experts to strengthen the sustainable farming movement to help farmers create more successful businesses, and to foster a sense of community among those engaged in the local and sustainable food and farm movement. Conferences similar to ours are hosted across the United States, some as old as 35 years with 3,000 attendees, but in Utah, this is the first of its kind— the only one in Utah, and southern at that! The Utah Farm Conference focuses not only on learning but gathering and being inspired. If farmers, soil, and food are important to you, then do not miss this conference!
