Michigan Family Farms Conference




The Michigan Family Farms Conference is more than just a conference! Year after year, farmers, educators, and food system professionals gather to network, learn, and share resources and experiences. Each conference, we come together to celebrate diversity, expand our knowledge of sustainable agriculture, and strengthen the supportive network of farmers that we know is essential for building resilient farms.

The conference offers beginning, small-scale, and culturally diverse farmers a chance to network, learn, and build sustainable family farms. It is an energizing, hands-on event featuring multiple tracks of breakout sessions plus a youth track to engage the whole family. 

The theme of the 17th Annual Michigan Family Farms Conference to be held February 8, 2020 is, "Nurturing Resilient Farms - 2020 & Beyond."  There will be a full lineup of workshops focusing on resilience of small Michigan farms as well as a special keynote and awards ceremony. The conference will be held at Kalamazoo Valley Community College at the Texas Township Campus located at 6767 W O Ave, Kalamazoo, MI 49009. Registration and check in starts at 8am!
