No matter your experience level or agricultural interests, you’ll be able to pack your schedule with valuable sessions that help hone your craft, grow your business, and advance your cause. Each year, we work hard to assemble educational programming that serves the evolving needs and interests of our diverse attendees.
Our annual conference draws 1,800+ farmers, food system professionals, educators, advocates, market managers, homesteaders, and others who are passionate about building a better food system.
Our expansive trade show features vendors and businesses whose mission is to support sustainable agriculture professionals. You’ll have the opportunity to talk with and purchase products or services from seed companies, small equipment manufacturers, soil amendment producers, marketing consultants, organic certifiers, extension agents, feed producers, government agencies, researchers, and others!
Educational sessions are interspersed with networking and social events that include evening receptions, live music, a seed swap, knitting circles, movie screenings—and of course delicious, regionally sourced meals.
Our Future Farmers mini-conference educates and entertains your children while you attend the main event. Children from kindergarten to eighth grade will enjoy a wide range of activities developed to increase their understanding of farming, nutrition, and sustainability.
Our 2020 Conference will be held at the Lancaster Convention Center in the heart of Lancaster, PA. You’ll have the opportunity to explore Lancaster’s vibrant downtown, its thriving food scene, and its rich history.
