California needs small farms.
Small farms need to continue
to innovate to succeed.
Together we can grow California farming.

Coming Up: February 2019 in Davis, CA

The 2019 California Small Farm Conference will be held February 22 and 23, 2019, in Davis. The conference is developed in partnership with CAFF/Farmers Guild.

The Conference

The California Small Farm Conference is for farmers who are committed to sustaining California’s long history of small-scale and family farms and ranches that produce great food and sustain our state’s rural communities. The Conference is also for farmers’ market managers whose efforts provide successful direct marketing outlets for California farmers. Pulling together innovators, family farmers and experts in environmentally and economically transformative practices, this event is an opportunity to interact with leaders in your field, to network and to learn about new trends and practices. You will be inspired – and will inspire others – to make California’s small farms, their products and the farmers’ markets and sellers who promote them, shine.

We bring in the best farmers, ranchers, farmers’ market managers and marketers to share how they make their crops, animals, markets and businesses grow.
