March 28, 2020 - The Hotel at Kirkwood - Cedar Rapids, IA

Acres of Opportunity is an Iowa Farm Bureau-inspired conference focusing on crop and livestock opportunities for new and small farmers and those interested in diversification.

During this one-day conference, farmers will have the opportunity to attend over a dozen breakout sessions to gather information, resources and tools that can help them explore potential new revenue streams for their farms in niche areas such as vegetable production, hops, grass-fed beef, meat goats, bees, strawberries, mushrooms, pumpkins and more.

Attendees can connect with industry experts, including farmers who have successfully implemented alternative enterprises, and learn first-hand about new business models and revenue streams. There will also be business breakout sessions focused on building a business plan, risk management, and loan programs to help new farmers get started.


Registration is FREE for Farm Bureau Members and $55/per person for non-members*.

*For $55 or less, you can join Farm Bureau and enjoy the many benefits of membership including free admission to this conference and more. Learn more here.
