We want to offer as much Local, Fresh Florida-produced food that is possible for this conference. This is an opportunity to showcase your products and expand your market.
A statewide team of UF and FAMU cooperative extension service faculty and staff host a farming resources website with information such as "getting started" and"marketing" as well as links to valuable sources, and much more.
In addition to the statewide conference, the Small Farms team also coordinates several regional workshops, and working groups that meet periodically on operating small farms.
