Small Farm Trade Show and Conference

One of the best farm shows (and the least expensive one) I've ever been to has got to be the National Small Farm and Trade Show that happens each first full weekend in November.  This year the dates are this week Nov 4-6 at the Boone County Fairgrounds in Columbia, MO.

What makes this farm show one of the best is the number of creative and innovative farmers that speak and exhibit.  Each year the topics change according to the trends in agriculture for small farms and alternative farming. 

The show will have one hour seminars, three hour short courses, half hour farmers forums, numerous demonstrations and tons of exhibitors.

The cost is $8 for one day; $12 for two days, and $15 for all three days.  This price will get you into the seminars, demonstrations and exhibits.  If you would like to attend any of the 9 three hour short course there is an additional charge of $35.

There will be plenty to see and lots of networking and gobs to learn.  For more information about the show you can call 800-633-2535.

I will be at the Missouri Alternatives Center exhibit so come on by and say hello.
