The conference, “Making Green with Green – Direct Marketing Your Pasture Raised Products,” will be held on March 23, 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. and will address issues surrounding the production and marketing of locally grown, grass-raised products.

Joel Salatin, a farmer from Swoope, Virginia will be the featured speaker at the conference. Joel has been farming fulltime since 1982, and has developed management systems for pastured poultry, cattle, pork, and rabbits. His experience with direct marketing his products began with on-farm sales and has expanded to include marketing to local restaurants, a home buyer’s club, and EcoFriendly Foods. Joel will be discussing “Farming for Profit, Production, and Pleasure” and “Relationship Marketing,” and will hold an informal discussion session following the conference from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. at no additional charge.
