We are committed to making “Facing the Horizon” affordable for all to attend. In addition to keeping our conference registration rates low, conference discounts are given to all registrants with current PFI memberships. Please read about these in the Member Discounts section below.

As funding allows, PFI will award scholarships to aspiring and beginning farmers to attend the 2022 annual conference. Aspiring farmers or beginning farmers who have been farming for fewer than 10 years – and have not previously attended a PFI annual conference – are eligible to apply. PFI encourages farmers who are Black, Indigenous, Latino or who belong to other historically underserved or marginalized groups, as well as farmers who are military veterans and those with limited resources, to apply for a scholarship.

Volunteer opportunities may also be available. Please call the PFI office to inquire about scholarships and volunteer opportunities, or if you would like assistance with registration: (515) 232-5661.

Don’t forget lunch!

All lunch tickets must be purchased in addition to conference tickets.

Friday box lunches will be available prior to 12:30 p.m. only for those who pre-order. Saturday lunch tickets may be available for purchase that day, but keep in mind that tickets sell out some years.

Both lunches (and complimentary Saturday breakfast) are made primarily with ingredients sourced from PFI member farms.
