California Small Farm Conference
Registration is now open for the California Small Farm Conference - the state's premier gathering for small-scale farmers and ranchers, farmers' market managers, university researchers, federal and state agriculture agencies, agriculture students, food policy advocates, consumers and others. The goal of the Conference is to promote the success and viability of small and family owned farming operations and farmers markets through short courses, field tours and workshops.
This year's California Small Farm Conference (CSFC), featuring opening plenary speaker, A.G. Kawamura, will be held at the San Diego Marriott Mission Valley in southern California on March 7 - 10, 2015.
Keep updated on all activities by liking us on Facebook and signing up for our E-Newsletter. We hope some of you will join UC Small Farm Program staff on the Agritourism Field Course or the Alternatives in Marketing Field Course.
