17TH ANNUAL EMERGING FARMERS CONFERENCE

November 12, 2022 – November 13, 2022


Location: Shoreview, MN

The Emerging Farmers Conference is for new and emerging growers and producers. This conference is for farmers, by farmers, and led by farmers. The goal is to empower emerging farmers with knowledge, resources and connection. For the first time, this conference features field day! Saturday will be a day of learning, networking and story-sharing at Shoreview Community Center. Sunday will be a field day where farmers have the opportunity for hands-on learning. The field day will begin at the U of M St. Paul campus in the morning. You will board a coach bus that will take you around Minneapolis to explore food & agriculture opportunities in an urban setting. Choose from sessions including a commercial kitchen tour at The Good Acre, urban hydroponics freight farm tour at North Market, and a hands-on microgreen demo at the University of Minnesota Greenhouses.
