The Southern Family Farmers & Food System Conference returns to the campus of Texas State University in 2022, hosted by a partnership of Small Producers Initiative at Texas State University, Council for Healthy Food Systems, and Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance.

In this fourth year of this partnership, our focus and mission remain the same … to present educational and networking opportunities for the producers, consumers, and supporters of sustainably grown, locally sourced foods.

Join us for dozens of multi-track sessions on Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 8-9, and for in-depth, half- or full-day workshops on Sunday, Aug. 7. Topics will cover livestock, crops, policies and regulations, business and marketing issues, and more.

Each year, this unique event 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.
