The Southern Family Farmers & Food System Conference returns to the campus of Texas State University in 2022, hosted by a partnership of the Small Producers Initiative at Texas State University, the Council for Healthy Food Systems, and the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance.
In this fourth year of this partnership, the focus and mission remain the same: to present educational and networking opportunities for the producers, consumers, and supporters of sustainably grown, locally sourced foods.
Join in for dozens of multi-track sessions on Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 8-9, and for in-depth, half- or full-day workshops on Sunday, Aug. 7. We’ll also host a special 2-day workshop on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 6-7. Topics will cover livestock, crops, policies and regulations, business and marketing issues, and more.
Each year, this unique event focuses on the policies and regulations affecting our farms and our food as well as the latest developments in sustainable agriculture. Whether you are a farmer, consumer, chef, local foods business owner, or nonprofit advocate, you will find useful information and tools to help support the growth of the local and sustainable food movement.
