The Thriving Farmer Summit Series

A value filled opportunity for you and your audience

 

Three days of value packed learning on how to add value and make more on your farm.

 

This summit will feature an amazing line-up of innovative farmers, producers, and entrepreneurs from around the world! And it’s all about value-added

What is value-added?
It’s about taking what you have on the farm or homestead and raising it to a new level. It’s about crafting a product that fills a niche and meets market demands. It’s about diversifying and developing additional income streams to make our small farms profitable.

So many amazing value-added ideas are out there!

Here are just a few headlines to whet your appetite. 

  • Extra tomatoes and peppers become a top-selling salsa.
  • Flowers find new life in dried arrangements.
  • Elderberries emerge as a super syrup, tea, or fruit leather.
  • Local ‘pizza farm’ features meats and seasonal produce from their fields.
  • Growers pool veggie resources to create and market flavorful ferments.
  • On-farm events, farm stays…the lists are endless.

Who attends the thriving farmer summits?

Our summits attract a wide range of attendees. Based on detailed audience insights and metrics, we see three main categories:

Gardeners and homesteaders looking to do it themselves!

Beginning farmers who are looking to scale up and learn new techniques

Experienced farmers looking to hone their skills and grow more

2022 is all about Value-Added

We believe farmers are missing out on one of the biggest opportunities- adding to their revenue without growing additional crops by value adding. Think pickling, preserving, drying, farm events, Airbnb, kimchi, soap,  pizza farming, farm to table, bone broth and so much more. Speakers will share how they got started, what it takes to run their business, and tips and tricks along the way.
