The MFFC is a forum for beginning, small-scale and culturally diverse farmers to network, learn and build sustainable family farms. For the past eleven years, the conference has helped connect farmers from across the state to important resources and learn how to make their farms more sustainable and more viable. Some topics include: Food safety and post-harvest processing; relocalizing small grains to niche markets; the Farm Bill and USDA programs; rotational grazing; integrated pest management; choosing the right farmers market; workshops in Spanish; racial equity and food justice; beginning farmer initiatives; the Study-A-Farm program; and programs for youth.
