Sustainable Small Farm Summit (Online)

March 18, 2015 - March 21, 2015

Free

Join BK Farmyards March 18-21 at the FREE online Sustainable Small Farm Summit, an exciting gathering of 18 farmers and activists who are coming together to share valuable insights into the often neglected business side of farming. Our goal is to support new farmers and people transitioning into farming to become even more effective at creating financially viable farms. New farmers, wanna-be farmers & farmer-curious people – we hope you will join us.
