 The Purdue Small Farm & Sustainable Agriculture Team formed several years ago to support the growing number of small and alternative farming operations. The team is a collaborative effort, engaging researchers, educators, and farmers to help foster this diverse community.

The team meets a few times throughout the year to discuss current and future initiatives addressing small and alternative farming operations.

One major initiative the team has been addressing is the creation of an annual conference to bring together farmers, educators and researchers to create a supportive network for those engaged in this field and an opportunity to share knowledge. In 2013, we had the first Indiana Small Farm Conference in Dannville, which had over 200 attendees, 5 tracks, and 45 sessions. We look forward to continuing this annual event, and hope it will continue to provide a chance to build this community.
