Registration for the 2021 Conference is now OPEN!!

Indiana Small Farm Conference

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.

The conference will offer seven topic-area tracks, from which you can choose the sessions that make the most sense for your operation and goals. Those tracks are:

  • Advanced Livestock
  • Advanced Vegetable Production
  • Beginning Farmer
  • Farm Business & Marketing Plans
  • Regenerative Agriculture
  • Urban Agriculture
  • Youth Track: Careers in Agriculture / Small Farms

The agenda will also offer a bonus topic track in Mental Health that will be free to all, regardless of registration for the conference. The 2021 DRAFT Session Agenda is now available. Access HERE.

Our keynote speakers have been announced!! Read more about them.

Indiana University-Sustainable Food Systems Science is proud to sponsor the keynote address given by, Richard Perkins (12:30 to 1:30 p.m. EST, March 5). He is the co-owner, director and lead designer of Ridgedale Farm AB in Värmland, Sweden, author of the internationally renowned Regenerative Agriculture, and producer of the series Making Small Farms Work. Blending dynamic instruction and down-to-earth pragmatism, he promotes a philosophy of permaculture in farming — design strategies that capitalize on patterns and resilient features found in natural ecosystems. Perkins will discuss how focusing on regenerative agriculture can empower small farm enterprises to be resilient, entrepreneurial and profitable.

Indiana Farm Bureau is proud to sponsor the keynote address given by Dan and Julie Perkins (12:30 to 1:30 p.m. EST, March 6). Dan and Julie operate Perkins’ Good Earth Farm, an organic vegetable farm on 20 acres in DeMotte. After balancing a career in soil and water conservation with farming on the side, the Perkins family made a transition to full-time farming in 2019. Dan and Julie Perkins will discuss their experiences in “the beautiful, sometimes chaotic, get-your-hands-dirty, oh-so-satisfying working of the land.”
