ASAP’s Business of Farming Conference is a day of learning and networking for those involved in local food and farming. Each year, approximately 250 area farmers, agriculture professionals, and business and marketing specialists attend tailored 90-minute workshops, meet with restaurant and wholesale buyers, tour Warren Wilson’s farm and garden, and celebrate the start of the season. If you’re currently farming or seriously considering farming as a profession, you won’t want to miss our 2014 conference!
Registration is now open at asapconnections.org/conference; attendance is $40 per person by January 31 and $60 beginning February 1, with a discount for multiple farm registrants. The conference is made possible with support from Katuah Market, Buncombe County, The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina, and the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
