November 14, 2015 – Huntington, WV
The Tri-State Farm & Food Conference has been met with incredible enthusiasm from folks in the greater Huntington area. We are striving for even more enthusiasm as we gear up for the 2015 conference.
After a two year hiatus, we are happy to be gathering again in the Tri-State. The conference’s aim is to revolutionize the food-shed to help farmers and food producers run viable businesses through agricultural education, in the 50 mile radius of Huntington. This effort reaches an area that encompasses 15 counties located throughout West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky.
We hope that you will take advantage of the experts we have and that you will form relationships that will continue after the conference. We are fortunate to have so many gifted people who are always happy to help farmers and food producers in anyway they can.
Cost – $25 (includes lunch)
Saturday will feature four 1 1/2 hour long sessions covering topics of Vegetable Production, Farm to School, Risk Management, Marketing, and Food Systems.
Lunch from noon until 2:00 PM will be sourced from local farmers. Local food is a focus of our mission, and helping farmers to capture more of the food expenditure of their geographic area is our goal. A special lunchtime panel will discuss an exciting new project – REFRESH APPALACHIA.
The conference is being held at Heritage Farm Museum and Village, 3300 Harvey Road Huntington, WV 25704.
