Thursday and Friday are full of a variety of sessions and presentations (please see the agenda below). On Thursday morning, we will be featuring a plenary session that focuses on statewide agricultural updates and subjects of interest. For those unable to attend the conference in-person, on Thursday afternoon, the conference will offer our Rural and Off-Road Agriculture session that is available free by webinar (click here to attend).
If you are only participating on Saturday for workshops, there is no fee, but the Produce Safety Workshop requires you to RSVP/Register prior to the start of the conference (see links and flyers below).
The conference also features an FSPCA Preventative Controls for Human Foods Blended Course for farmers and business owners looking to embark on value-added food processing. This course requires online coursework to be completed prior to attending instructor-led training on Friday Feb. 21 (click here for more info). From farming and ranching to food processing and business management, this year's conference has many presentations to offer.
