  Join more than 350 farmers and agricultural resource providers from six Northeast states at this perennial winter conference for a cross-section of the region's livestock production.
The event takes places at the family-friendly Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee, VT just off Interstate-91. The weekend highlights local, grass-fed and organic foods, livestock farmers and supporters from over six states, and plenty of new ideas to take home and ruminate on as you plan for 2018.

  What have some of these attendees liked best about past conferences? 

•    The...workshop was very informative and took a lot of information home with me. Met a lot of people and the networking was key.
•    Workshop range and quality
•    Innovative ideas, spirit of presenters
•    Being with other farmers, hearing their experiences
•    Great, varied, fresh speakers
•    Seemed like there was something for everyone at every session
•    Lunch was excellent and the ice cream was delicious
