Satellite Farming Summit

January 23, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

pigs-1934271_960_720 Have you thought about starting a small farming operation? Do you currently farm but are seeking alternative crop options this year? Wouldn’t it be great to grow a crop or raise livestock with a buyer already lined up before the season even starts? This is the concept behind satellite farming.

One of the largest challenges facing small farm operations is investing in a product that may or may not have a market.  At the same time, another challenge Stevens County faces is buyers looking for locally sourced product and not being able to find it.
