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 farm in niche areas such as vegetable production, hops, meat goats, strawberries, pumpkins, alternative livestock opportunities 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, loan programs and how to get started selling at farmers' markets.
