Strategies for Strange Times

Virtual Farmer Meet-Ups

Friday | June 12 | 1 – 2 p.m.

Over the past few months, direct-market farmers have joined PFI’s Strategies for Strange Times Call each Friday to share and discuss the changes, challenges, ideas and opportunities for their farms, and to learn from and be in community with other farmers about these topics in real time.

For the concluding Strategies for Strange Times Call of the season (it’s field day season, now!) we invite ALL PFI farmers to join our conversation as we welcome Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig to our call this Friday, June 12, from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m.

Secretary Naig plans to provide 15-20 minutes of remarks at the beginning of the call, and then we will open the conversation for Secretary Naig to dialogue with farmers for the remainder of the call.

In keeping with the spirit of PFI, we ask that participants come to the call with an appetite for sharing and learning. We hope to feature the richness, creativity, inquisitiveness of PFI farmers of all enterprises, and to demonstrate the value of having farmers’ voices involved in agricultural policy and decision-making in Iowa.

Meghan Filbert (Livestock Program Manager) and Liz Kolbe (Horticulture Program Manager) will facilitate the discussion.
