Minority Landowner Virtual Events

Virtual Team Meeting
Minority Landowner 16th Anniversary Farmers and Landowners Conference

September 22, 23, 24, 2022

The three-day conference theme is Focus on The Farm - Focus on The Farmer - Focus on The Future. Minority Landowner Magazine's Annual Conference will start with a focus on technical and financial assistance programs including farm planning, farm loans, high tunnels, forest management and a farmer-led Problem Solving Roundtable. Then we move into topics that personally impact the life of the farmer to include mental health; occupational hazards; and mentorship programs. We will also hear from Farmer of the Year winners about what makes their operations a national success story and how they balance farming and life. We end with a look to the future, providing training on wills, estate planning and heirs' property; a review of trends within the agricultural census data; a student-led panel on the future of agriculture; and a report from the Socially Disadvantaged Farmers and Ranchers Policy Research Center.
