The inaugural 2017 conference brought together 200 participants from around the Midwest and beyond.  This year’s conference will feature farmer panels on cauliflower, cucumbers, tomatoes, strawberries, and niche hoophouse crops.  There will also be interactive sessions on labor recruitment, equipment for every farm size, favorite varieties, and more.

This conference is based on farmer to farmer networking and information sharing.  Extension specialists support the dialogue with research based information on diseases, pests, and fertility.  Detailed handouts on the featured vegetable crops are provided to all participants.  Interpretation is available in Hmong and Spanish.

“There was more practical information here than in other conferences I’ve been to.”   – 2017 Farmer Attendee
