This is the premier conference in Indiana where small farmers of all kinds have opportunities to network with fellow Indiana farmers and learn about advancements relevant to their operations, this is what makes the Indiana SFC special. We hope you’ll consider submitting a proposal to present next year and share your knowledge, passion, and innovation with others!

This is an open call to farmers, educators, researchers, and other agricultural professionals or stakeholders in the small-farm space. Vegetable production, livestock (grazed, urban, etc.), food safety, marketing, value-added products, farm viability and land access are all topics of interest to attendees. If you would like to share about strategies that have been successful on your farm, we want to hear from you! Farmer to farmer knowledge sharing is something we pride ourselves in.
