Farming for the Future Conference

The annual Farming for the Future conference is PASA's signature event and our main vehicle for community building. Widely regarded as the best of its kind in the East, this diverse event brings together an audience of over 2,000 farmers, processors, consumers, students, environmentalists, and business and community leaders annually. The sheer numbers and diversity of business and organizations that are associated with the conference are notable, through sponsoring, exhibiting and presenting. Typical conference workshops focus on such practical topics as poultry production, cheese making, riparian buffers, organic certification and raw milk marketing. The very popular day-long "Pre-Conference" tracks offer in-depth exploration of special topic areas.

So, beginning with the 20th annual conference in 2011, we introduced the PASAbilities Leadership Award Series. On Saturday of the conference, we will feature two speakers, this year’s winners of our Sustainable Ag Leadership Award as well as the Sustainable Ag Business Leader Award!
