Young farmers conference
Every December, hundreds of beginning farmers from across the United States gather at Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in Pocantico Hills, New York to learn from agricultural luminaries, peers, and advocacy organizations at the Young Farmers Conference. On December 2-4, 2015, Stone Barns Center will host the 8th annual Young Farmers Conference, providing participants with access to inspiring keynotes and unique workshops that address soil science, technical skills, agricultural policy, farm business management, conservation and more.
Stone Barns Center is offering a limited number of farmer scholarships to the 2015 Young Farmers Conference. Scholarships cover the cost of conference registration, December 3-4; recipients are expected to cover the cost of their lodging and travel expenses to and from the conference.
