Best agricultural meeting I’ve ever been to.”

That’s what Joe Bryant, Jr., who farms 3000 acres in Lonoke County says.

Now you have a chance to see if you agree.

New opportunities for Arkansas farmers, rural communities, and healthy food is the topic of our state-wide meetings. The meetings–planned by elected officials, farmers, and consumers–feature speakers from throughout the country. Experts in value-added diversification will offer options from small scale vegetable and flower production to export opportunities for value-added grains. In addition, policy experts from other states will join with state legislators and other elected officials to design state legislation to assist farmers and rural communities.

“This conference is an unprecedented step toward changing the way we treat farmers and rural communities,” Rep. Wayne Nichols (D-Marked Tree) said.
