The Thriving Farmer Vegetable Summit:

A valuable opportunity for you and your audience!

January 11-14, 2024

Four days of value-packed learning on how to cultivate vegetables on your farm!

This summit will feature an amazing line-up of innovative farmers and gardeners from around the world! And it’s all about growing + selling vegetables

Take your farm to the next level

When you think farm, you think vegetables. After all, that's where many of us start! 

In most cases, vegetables are the first plants that new growers try to raise. You don't wake up one morning and decide to buy a farm out of the blue. No, a love for growing things usually stems from those tomato plants you tried to raise on your porch, or those times you had to weed your grandmother's garden, or the day you planted your first garden in your own backyard. Many of us farmers were gardeners first.

For large-scale and small-scale farms alike, vegetables usually make up a large portion of the farm operation. With so many types and varieties to choose from, you can almost always find a few vegetables that grow well in your soil and climate!

Our 2024 summit will feature over 20 speakers who are top vegetable growers. You'll learn about cultivation methods, specific crops, mistakes to avoid, and much more from successful farmers who are excited to share their knowledge with you.
