A business and marketing conference for professional and aspiring farmers
ASAP’s Business of Farming Conference brings together professional farmers from across the Southeast region to network and share resources to grow their farm businesses. Farmers will learn about marketing, business planning, branding, and management from regional experts and innovative peers. The conference is designed for beginning and established farmers as well as those seriously considering farming as a profession.
The 2020 Business of Farming Conference will take place Saturday, February 22, at the AB Tech Conference Center in Asheville, NC.
Choose from more than 15 workshops on business planning, farm financials, direct and wholesale marketing, agritourism, insurance and legal considerations, and much more, led by regional business and marketing professionals and innovative farmers. No pre-registration is required.
Meet with restaurant owners, chefs, distributors, and grocers to discuss sourcing and possible matches between what you produce and what each buyer needs—it’s like speed dating for local sourcing! Many farmers have made connections with participating buyers, and many more have improved their ability to serve wholesale accounts.
Experts are available to provide your farm with individual support on a variety of business, marketing, and management topics. Meet one-to-one with local attorneys, social media experts, tax professionals, and others during the conference networking lunch.
Connect with representatives from a variety of regional agricultural and business services in our conference exhibitor hall. Interested in being an exhibitor in 2020? Contact us to learn how to connect your services with professional farmers.
