2019 Conference Sponsorship

As the largest gathering of sustainable southern farmers, the Southern Sustainable Agriculture Working Group conference is often heralded as the largest gathering of small and family farms in one place. This gathering is known as the number one choice for conference attendance due to the unique network of farmers, activists and support organizations providing an incredible opportunity to introduce your product, brand or service, and to also gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities your customers face. We are the #1 place in January to connect with both producers and industry leaders to get your product and service offerings out to the marketplace and we would love to have you here with us!

  • Eight-year history of conferences
  • Over 12,000 farmers served
  • Attendees from the 13 Southern states and beyond
  • Part of the trending “local food movement” taking the nation by storm
