Working to improve the sustainable production, marketing and consumption of local food

The  Western Colorado Food and Farm Forum is coming up in January of 2019.  It features a wide array of breakout sessions which convey vital, regionally specific agricultural information in areas including maximizing crop and livestock production, innovative agricultural marketing and management strategies, and specialty crops.

This year’s theme is “Healthy Fields, Farmers, Futures”.  Do you have a suggestion for a topic or a speaker?  Click here to let us know – we look forward to hearing from you.   The keynote speaker for 2019 is Joel Salatin – learn and laugh with the most famous farmer in the world.  His presentation is titled: “Dancing with Dinner: Healing the nutritional deficit in the urban, rural divide”.  

The conference is for anyone with an interest in the future of agriculture, including: ranchers, farmers, gardeners, students and ag professionals. Whether you’re looking to improve or innovate your existing practices, the forum has myriad resources and networking opportunities.  Watch this space for details!
