This year’s  annual Small Farms Conference promises to be anything but small.

Keynote speaker Kristin Kimball's latest book

On Saturday, February 25th, in Corvallis, Oregon there will be over 20 different sessions and workshops offered to Conference attendees, in addition to the Keynote address.  (This year’s Keynote speaker is Kristin Kimball, author of “The Dirty Life:  on Farming, Food, and Love”.)

This event isn’t just for farmers, either.  In attendance you’ll find food retailers, farmer’s market managers, restaurant owners, food policy advocates, and community members.  The workshops offered encompass a wide variety of topics, anything from winter farming to livestock marketing, food policy updates to permaculture, water harvesting to farm business plans and much more!

The Conference is fast approaching!  But it’s not to late to register:  The fee of $50 per person admits you to any 3 workshops of your choice,  and includes refreshments and a lunch featuring locally sourced foods.
