The Vermont Grazing and Livestock Conference
23rd Annual Vermont Grazing & Livestock Conference
The Heart of the Matter: Growing Deep Roots and Healthy Farms
January 18 & 19, 2019 Lake Morey Resort
Join more than 350 farmers and agricultural resource providers from six Northeast states at this perennial winter conference for a cross section of the region's livestock production.
The event takes places at the family-friendly Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee, VT just off Interstate-91. The conference rate on overnight rooms is $99/night plus tax. Friday will feature day-long sessions on direct marketing, policies, and managing farm business risk. Saturday includes 12+ workshops plus double keynote presentations, lunch discussions, tradeshow and much more, as well as a kids' conference for ages 6-12. The weekend highlights local, grass-fed and organic foods, great company from over six states, and plenty of new ideas to take home and ruminate on as you plan for 2019.
