farm succession conference
Posted: June 19 2010
The International Farm Transition Network will host their annual conference July 20-23, 2010 at the Sheraton Suites in Cuyahoga Falls, OH. This three day meeting will bring together agricultural professionals, farmers, citizens, and service providers to discuss and learn about exciting projects in farm transition.
The conference will highlight the Countryside Initiative: a partnership between the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and the Countryside Conservancy. The program offers rehabilitated farms in the national park to private farmers through a competitive long-term lease process. During the conference, participants will hear panel discussions on farm labor, beginning farmer and farm succession research, and farm policy, and listen to interns, apprentices, and retiring farmers discuss their needs related to farm transition. Registration is open and the deadline for the discounted conference hotel rate is fast approaching.
