2016 Farm to Market Conference November 11-12 Cheyenne Wyoming
November 11 – November 12
Ever wondered what the USDA Seed Laboratory does to protect and store the worlds plant varieties, how to properly grow and save heirloom seeds or how to produce your own on farm nitrogen to fertilize your vegetables. These are just a few of the topics that will be covered at the November 11-12 “Farm to Market Conference”.
There is an incredible amount to interest in growing, selling and saving local fruits, vegetables and herbs. The conference will start off with four day long workshops that includes a certification course to satisfy FDA regulations on how to safely make acidified foods like pickles and salsa, a 101 course on seed breeding, production and saving, a build your own hands on hoop house workshop, and a course for farmers market managers on marketing, conflict resolution and management.
On day two this information packed conference includes topics on grape growing for northern climates, how to effectively manage a hoop house, best soil management practices, hop production, fruit tree production, branding and marketing your products, what grants are out there, selling wholesale using third part certification, how to safely ferment food, and what’s new on FSMA.
