About our events

Field days, workshops, and webinars are the backbone of Farmer-to-Farmer Exchange activities at PASA’s SOIL Institute. These events are organized to give our leading farmers a forum to share what they know, and give all farmers - both experienced and beginning - an opportunity to ask questions and sound out new ideas. Depending on speakers and topics, these events may include farm tours, classroom presentations, or hands-on learning. We strive to offer delicious, local meals at our Farmer-to-Farmer Exchange events and provide ample time for discussion and networking. PASA members enjoy discounted registration to these events, but all events are open to the general public.

Grazing Cows

In addition, to educational events, PASA also organizes potlucks and social gatherings for all our members at various times throughout the year and across the state.

We also work to promote the events of many partner food and farming organizations in Pennsylvania and neighboring states. Check our calendar often for updates!
