10 Things Past Attendees are Saying About BOF!

We can really say that our 10th annual Business of Farming Conference is near now that February is here! The conference is Saturday, February 23; spaces are still available but filling up fast. For our third ‘top 10’ list in honor of the occasion, we’re sharing what past conference attendees are saying about the BIG event we affectionately call BOF:

10 Things Past Attendees are Saying About BOF 

  1. I’m a new farmer. Glad there’s help out there!
  2. The CSA workshop gave me ideas about how to transition a traditional CSA into one offering more options.
  3. I’m a beginning farmer, so attending the food safety workshop was very informative.
  4. It’s really valuable to hear about laws and regulations affecting farmers.
  5. Before the farm to table workshop, I wasn’t clear how to go about selling to restaurants. But now, I am much more informed.
  6. Great marketing tips!
  7. After attending the farm to table/selling to restaurants session, I will definitely take this information to our farmers and will use it to make connections with our restaurants.
  8. I’m very excited to practice a new method of bookkeeping.
  9. Great content and speakers. I loved meeting my “neighbors” and getting tips and encouragement from them.
  10. Thank you for the conference, the sharing of local food, and the networking opportunities! My experiences today will change how I do business.
