Presented by the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project, the conference will focus on the business side of farming, offering beginning and established farmers financial, legal, management and marketing tools to improve their farm businesses and make new professional connections. It will feature more than a dozen workshops led by farmers and regional professionals, including several that address COVID-19’s continued effects on the industry. It will also include a business planning track and the ever-popular Grower-Buyer Meeting.
