The Emerging Farmers Conference is a two-day event that serves to advance the success and sustainability of farmers who traditionally face barriers to building agricultural businesses. The conference focuses primarily on the education, needs, and interests of immigrant farmers and farmers of color. Sessions are interpreted into over nine languages, and are led primarily by farmers themselves. The EFC is hosted by a collaborative of local and statewide organizations that are run by and/or work with farmers of color. Through sponsorship, you can be part of making this valuable opportunity available to farmers.
We are stronger together!
