Field Day Sponsor Information

Register as a 2024 Field Day Sponsor

Farmer-led field days are the foundation for how Practical Farmers of Iowa fulfills its mission of equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities. Your sponsorship support is critical for us to continue providing high-quality (and free) farmer-led learning events.

At PFI, we take pride in our “big tent” that includes farmers with operations of all sizes and production practices. Our farmer-led field day lineup reflects this diversity, with events focused on conventional and organic field crops, cover crops and small grains, livestock of differing scale and species, vegetable production, orcharding, agroforestry, cut flowers and more.

We are confident our field days and extensive outreach efforts around them will provide ample customer and constituent exposure for sponsoring organizations. If you have any questions about supporting PFI’s field day season through sponsorships, please contact Emma Liddle at emma.liddle(at)practicalfarmers(dot)org.
