“Backyard Farming” is going to the National Small Farm Conference!
This blog will be featured in the poster session of the 5th National Small Farm Conference on September 15-17 in Springfield, Illinois. Marisa and Dale will be there to present the poster and would love to see any of our readers who would like to come along. The conference is organized by the United States Department of Agriculture and the University of Illinois Extension. With short courses, concurrent sessions, posters, exhibits, and farm tours, this conference provides a wealth of ideas for anyone interested in small farms, even backyard farms.
