Advanced Grower Meeting: Where Do We Go From Here?

December 11, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

$10

This was a challenging year for vegetable farmers in Pennsylvania. What worked or didn’t work for you this season? And how are you planning for the season—and years—ahead?

We invite you to share your experiences, ideas, and questions with your peers at this full-day advanced grower meeting, which will feature presentations from Pennsylvania vegetable growers, complemented by facilitated group discussions.

  • Our morning session will include a 2018 season-in-review discussion and a presentation on realizing profitability and efficiency in the farm operation.
  • In the afternoon, we’ll discuss emerging trends in farm aggregation networks, including a discussion of the pros and cons of growing single crops for a wholesale market, and coordinating grower networks to access new market channels.
  • Finally, the day will conclude with a panel discussion addressing the question: “In a changing environmental and economic climate, where do we go next?”

This meeting is intended for vegetable growers with at least five years of farm management experience. Interested growers with less experience are encouraged to contact PASA event coordinator Aaron de Long regarding participation in this event at aaron@pasafarming.org or (814) 349-9856 x709.

This event is presented in partnership with Penn State Extension, Pennsylvania Farmers Union, and Buy Fresh Buy Local of the Greater Lehigh Valley.
