Hosted in partnership with the Council for Healthy Food Systems and the Small Producers Initiative at Texas State University, the 2020 Conference went virtual, Monday and Tuesday, October 26-27.

We missed the face-to-face interaction with our community, but we were thrilled to gather online with 350 members of our local foods and sustainable ag community!

In case you missed it or want to watch again, here’s a link to the keynote address by U.S. Representatives Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Chellie Pingree (D-ME) on the federal-level focus on small farmers and sustainable agriculture.



Each year, this unique conference focuses on the policies and regulations affecting our farms and our food as well as the latest developments in sustainable agriculture.  Whether you are a farmer, consumer, chef, local foods business owner, or nonprofit advocate, you will find useful information and tools to help support the growth of the local and sustainable food movement.

Check back in early 2021, when we announce plans for our next Farm & Food Leadership Conference.
