Thank you to everyone who helped make our first virtual Business of Farming Conference a success! We will announce dates for the 2022 conference (hopefully live!) in the fall.
About the Business of Farming Conference
ASAP’s Annual Business of Farming Conference brings together professional farmers from across the Southeast region to network and share resources to grow their farm businesses. Farmers learn about marketing, business planning, and financial 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.
Workshops for Beginning and Established Farmers
Choose from workshops on business planning, farm financials, direct and wholesale marketing, branding, legal considerations, and much more, led by regional business and marketing professionals and innovative farmers.
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. In addition to the in-person Grower-Buyer Meeting at the conference, ASAP is offering a series of stand-along virtual events. Find out more.
Networking and 1:1 Consulting
Attendees have the opportunity to meet, connect, and form supportive relationships. Experts are available to provide your farm with individual support on a variety of business, legal, marketing, and management topics.
Connect with representatives from a variety of regional agricultural and business services in our virtual exhibitor hall.
