This event is for larger scale farmers and ranchers who are already growing organically or who want to learn more about organic methods and markets. It’s a great chance to hear the latest news and research on organics, meet other farmers and resource people, and enhance or jump start your own organic projects.

Featured speakers include:

Oren Holle, nationally-known farmer from Kansas, will discuss OFARM, an innovative multi-state cooperative helping organic farmers maximize their pricing.
Chris Reberg-Horton from NC State will provide an update on the university’s path-breaking organic field trials. He’ll discuss a variety of common and not so common grains appropriate for the Carolinas.
Julie Grossman, soil scientist, will lead a workshop on the latest ideas for cover crops and soil fertility on larger-scale organic operations.
AJ Luft, popular veterinarian from Ohio, will discuss his experiences working with organic herds and holistic animal management.
Plus, information on organic inputs and market updates on best avenues to sell organic commodities and livestock.

Don’t wait! Limited spaces. This high quality, low-cost training course may sell out soon.
