The National Farm Viability Conference is focused on strengthening farm sustainability, building stronger and more resilient local food systems and supporting the long term profitability of farming and agri-entrepreneurs from start-ups to generational businesses.
The National Farm Viability Conference is geared towards professionals in the fields of farm and food business planning, financial planning, agricultural financing, farmland conservation, agricultural market development, and food hub management. It offers attendees the opportunity to network and learn from industry leaders and other professionals in their fields, develop new knowledge and skills, and tour nearby farms and value-added processing facilities. Our Minnesota hosts - Renewing the Countryside and the MN Department of Agriculture - are collaborating with past conference hosts to draw supporters of agriculture and agribusiness from around the country for this four national educational event.
