Since 2013, the Indiana Small Farm Conference has been the premier annual event for Indiana’s small- and diversified-farm community — helping them experience continuing education and enjoy farmer-to-farmer networking.
In 2021, the conference, our ninth overall, will be held online March 4-6, 2021 — with keynote, breakout and networking sessions (and more) held on the Microsoft Teams platform. There will be no in-person events due to public health concerns surrounding COVID-19.
Registration is now open and the draft agenda is available. Visit our 2021 Small Farm Conference page: https://www.purdue.edu/dffs/smallfarms/small-farm-conference-2021/
The Indiana Small Farm Conference serves as the annual educational and farmer-to-farmer networking event for the Indiana small and diversified farm community. The conference was developed in response to a gathering of Indiana small farmers and stakeholders at the Purdue University campus in the fall of 2011. The Purdue Small Farm team hosted the inaugural conference in 2013 and has had continued success thanks to the support of Indiana farmers and organizations. The conference now hosts over 500 attendees, 50 exhibitors, and several national speakers. We look forward to continuing to build this growing conference in partnership with the small and diversified farm community of Indiana!
