Since its inception in 1985, Practical Farmers of Iowa has been steadily growing our network of farmers in Iowa and beyond. This includes producers raising row crops, livestock, and horticultural crops, employing a wide range of production, conservation, and business management practices.
Each year, thousands of producers look to PFI for the practical programming we provide using farmer to farmer knowledge sharing on traditional and innovative practices. As a nonprofit organization, PFI welcomes your support to help us continue providing this programming, and strives to provide your organization with valuable opportunities to tap into our network.

Hundreds of farmers and friends of farmers gather for our Annual Conference in Ames, Iowa, each January for an energizing weekend of farmer-to-farmer learning and networking. Looking back on the most recent 5 years hosting our conferences, we’ve averaged 822 attendees and 87 sponsors and exhibitors each year.
Exhibitors have several options to choose from that allow any budget to get involved and gain exposure in our promotions and in the exhibit hall.

2023 Level A Conference Sponsors:
Practical Farmers’ on-farm field day season is a foundation of our organization. Each year, we plan dozens of on-farm events on our members’ farms where thousands of attendees learn first-hand about topics that help them build better farm businesses.
Organizations can choose to sponsor individual field days, the entire season, or both. Practical Farmers of Iowa staff begin recruiting these sponsors each year in April.
