January 17 - 19 | 2019 Practical Farmers of Iowa Annual Conference

Practical Farmers’ Annual Conference has been the backbone of PFI’s organization since its founding, when farmers looking to improve diversity on their farms gathered to share their knowledge openly with others. From the days when farmers hosted these informal get-togethers at someone’s farm and when farmers knew this as the Annual Meeting. For more information about being a sponsor or exhibitor, please email Kathy Eastman at keastman33@gmail.com.
