The conference is geared to support smaller-scale farmers, ranchers and local food advocates by promoting education, resources and critical conversations.

Organized by the Community Alliance with Family Farmers, the event invites experts, farmers, service providers and advocates to share their knowledge and experiences.

Past conferences covered topics including whole orchard nutrient cycling, climate change adaption strategies, land stewardship, expanding food access for all with online SNAP payments for farmers, integrating livestock into cropping systems, growing relationships between growers and state prisons, increasing landscape resilience through whole systems planning, and transforming rural healthcare.

Workshop proposals are open for submission until Sept. 15, 2024. The conference also seeks sponsorships.
