2018 OAK Conference

  • Clarion Hotel 1950 Newtown Pike Georgetown, KY, 40324 United States (map)

Lexington, KY. Local and national speakers spotlight a variety of topics, including livestock and row crops, dairy, growing produce, farm finances, and life on the farm. We expect more than 300 participants, including consumers, farmers, academics, government agencies, and businesses from Kentucky and beyond to continue the momentum in building a stronger and healthier food system.

Program features four short courses, 25 educational workshops, Liz Carlisle as the invited keynote speaker, an exhibitor fair, a Farm and Urban Food Systems Tour, a festive reception and silent auction, a special screening of King Corn and the always popular "Meet the Buyers" session. From beginning farmers to experienced growers, to the consumer who wants to learn more about the benefits of organic, these workshops have something for everyone.
