Please see attached a press release regarding an upcoming statewide conference for Small Farms and Alternative Enterprises. This is a great opportunity for new and small farmers to learn cutting edge information, rub elbows and network. The program is July 27- July 29, 2012 in Kissimmee. See more information on the conference here http://conference.ifas.ufl.edu/smallfarms/.
The conference sources from local growers as much as possible. Farmers interested in supplying product can complete a form located here http://conference.ifas.ufl.edu/smallfarms/supply.html and a menu planner will respond to work out details.
Farmers can also apply for a scholarship to attend. See more information on that here http://conference.ifas.ufl.edu/smallfarms/reg_scholarship.html.
Exhibitors have a great opportunity to connect with hundreds of interested people and are welcome to explore the details here http://conference.ifas.ufl.edu/smallfarms/exhibitor.html.
This is an excellent educational opportunity for farmers and other interested parties so please distribute this information widely.
Thanks for your time and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!
