The Direct Farm Conference brings together direct-marketing farmers, food businesses and wholesale buyers to network, share knowledge and further the development of the local food sector.
This Conference places a strong emphasis on farmer-to-farmer learning. Workshops draw from the knowledge of farmers and community leaders within Manitoba; presentations are typically less than 30 minutes long and Q+As led by volunteer facilitators follow each speaker to allow time for discussion.
The Schedule will be posted by November 30th on Facebook and at www.smallfarmsmanitoba.com/events
Children are welcome at this event but it is strongly encouraged that you purchase a childcare ticket if you plan to bring yours. There will be 2 trained childcare staff to supervise the children during the day (9:00 am - 5:00 pm).
