VSU to Host 2016 National Small Farm Conference

The 7th National Small Farm Conference with the theme of “Creating and Sustaining Small Farmers and Ranchers” will be held September 20-22, 2016, at the Virginia Beach Convention Center in Virginia Beach, VA.

Strategies for creating and sustaining small farmers and ranchers for enhanced farm income and improved quality of life will be discussed. Successes in small farm activities will be shared as well as innovative ideas in research, extension and outreach to strengthen collaboration and partnership among state specialists who work to ensure that small farmers and ranchers not only survive, but thrive in today’s economy. This Conference will also serve as a forum to discuss the results of research geared towards addressing challenges facing small farmers and ranchers. Strengthening partnerships created at the six previous National Small Farm Conferences will continue to be a priority for the Virginia Beach meeting.

This conference will consist of short courses, oral presentations, exhibits, poster paper presentations, success stories, and educational tours within the Virginia Beach region, the Chesapeake Bay region and North Carolina.
