Next Generation Summit

Sunday, August 4 | 1:30 – 5:30 p.m. | Van Meter

The Next Generation Summit brings together aspiring, beginning farmers, experienced farmers and landowners working toward farm succession in a meaningful way to steward the next generation of farmers.

The summit includes two workshops aimed at helping farmland owners and beginning and aspiring farmers develop a plan to fulfill their farm visions.  Farmland owners will work on setting goals that can help them move toward a farmland legacy reflecting their values. They will also learn how to take the next steps to start the transition process when the time is right. Beginning and aspiring farmers will walk through the process of determining their farming purpose and planning the next steps. The event will also feature many opportunities for conversation and networking.
