The New Entry Farmer-to-Farmer Conference is geared towards small-scale farmers who are interested in learning from their peers.  Our Schedule of Events includes panels on the following topics:


  • soil fertility
  • farm business and financial planning,
  • strategies for ensuring the health of livestock
  • building sustainable communities around food

Our farmer panels include speakers who are interested in sharing their expert knowledge in these areas.  A facilitated World Café discussion will give farmers a chance to choose discussion topics of interest on site and share best practices with peer-to-peer discussion. Enjoy a networking lunch and a farmer-to-farmer networking reception.

We surveyed small-scale beginning farmers to find out what they are looking for now in a conference.  Overwhelmingly, beginnning farmers are looking to obtain an insider’s view from their peers regarding how to make their businesses successful. What could be better than a conference which addresses your specific needs?
