2014 Annual Conference Registration Now Open
Our 2014 Annual Conference is set for Feb. 8 at the College of Saint Benedict in St. Joseph. Registration is NOW OPEN. Cost is just $35 for SFA members and $45 for nonmembers through Aug. 3A founding concept of SFA is that there is wisdom in the community, so you’ll help to determine and lead the sessions, which will include casual but focused networking conversations on topics that you choose. Using an online voting system (click here or see below), SFA members can choose session topics; we’ll analyze the data and create the schedule around your wishes. We want your input; you can even add your own ideas.
The venue at St. Ben’s will be a familiar, centrally located one that’s easily accessible. Lunch is not included with your registration; instead, attendees will enjoy a lengthy break where they can eat at St. Ben’s, walk to one of the restaurants in St. Joe, or bring a sack lunch. The idea is to give our members the freedom to network at their own pace, however and wherever they like, and to take advantage of the quaint surroundings.
Remember the gray Farmer-to-Farmer T-shirts from the 2013 Annual Conference (right)? They’re specially priced at just $15 when you register online for the 2104 Annual Conference.
Want the T-shirt for free? Volunteer at the 2014 Annual Conference – it’s not too early to sign up. Contact Volunteer Coordinator Karen Couné at karencounegmailcom (karencounegmailcom) or 612.202.7201.

Our 2013 Annual Conference had plenty of informative sessions, farmer networking, chef demonstrations, and food and drink.
Many attendees noted the excellent lineup of educational sessions during the two-day event – sharing knowledge is one of the main goals of the Annual Conference, so we were especially happy to receive such feedback.
