Come to celebrate the newest wave of farmers, ranchers, gardeners, educators, researchers, entrepreneurs, chefs, advocates, beekeepers, cheese-makers, butchers, grocers, foodies, and food lovers!
Hear from inspiring and thought-provoking speakers
Gather before the busiest throes of harvest season begin!
Kindle friendships, opportunities and partnerships hard to find in rural areas, uniting an oftentimes disparate movement– especially for a new wave of agrarians lured to farming not just by tradition but by a vision for a healthier food system and a passion for the land.
Connect with farmers and like-minded folks, collaborate and find the resources needed to thrive within local food webs, stimulate stronger local economies and sustain our natural resources.
Much can be learned online, reading, researching, but sometimes you just gotta be there! It’s not so much about what was said as what you heard!
Learn from inspiring keynotes, unique speakers from far and near, interesting workshops and all you encounter and experience while attending.
Feeling inspired to make a change in your community?
Learn to utilize your local resources and return home with new connections, tools and inspiration to enhance your farm and empower your community.
By trading ideas and sharing knowledge, skills, notes and advice, you’ll return home from this synergetic weekend ready to get to work on establishing a collective buying club, a CSA, a farm or a farmers market, a skill sharing bank or a group to advocate policy reform. Together we can make the changes we need to build a successful, healthy and thriving local food economy. And we’re pretty confident that you’ll do a good job of it!
