Equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities.
This year’s schedule includes three pre-conference short courses, 60-plus farmer-led sessions on a wide variety of agricultural topics, 80-plus exhibitors, locally sourced meals and a spirit of curiosity and community.
Since our founding in 1985, the annual conference has been a keystone event for sharing knowledge, building connections and celebrating agriculture in Iowa (and good food!). As our conference grows to over 1,000 attendees, we are pleased to offer three pre-conference short courses, 60- plus farmer-led sessions on a wide variety of agricultural topics, 80-plus exhibitors, locally sourced meals and a spirit of curiosity and community. Please note, we are moving to a new venue this year! Our 2024 conference will take place at the Iowa Choice Convention Center at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines (833 5th Avenue, Des Moines, IA). We hope to see you there!
