Thank you to all our attendees, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, volunteers, auction donors, & partners who made the 2021 SFFFS Conference an amazing success!


See you next year! 


Hosted in partnership with the Council for Healthy Food Systems and the Small Producers Initiative at Texas State University, the 2021 Conference returns to the campus of Texas State University.

We’re returning to an in-person format, adhering to the social distancing and masking requirements in place at the University at that time.

And we’ve changed the name to better reflect our partnership as well as our expansion into neighboring states: Southern Family Farmers and Food Systems Conference. But 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. 9-10, and for in-depth, half- or full-day workshops on Sunday, Aug. 8. Topics will cover livestock, crops, policies and regulations, business and marketing issues, technology for small producers, and more. We’ll even have a track for homesteaders and startups.

If you’re interested in being a sponsor or exhibitor for this event, please download our Sponsorship-Exhibitor Packet 2021.

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.
