The annual Emerging Farmers Conference (formerly the Immigrant & Minority Farmers Conference) serves to advance the success and sustainability of farmers who traditionally face barriers to the education and resources necessary to build profitable agricultural businesses, including immigrant farmers and farmers of color.

This innovative conference focuses primarily on the needs and interests of these farmers, and supports their contributions to local economic development and building healthy communities. It does so by connecting farmers, farm advocates, educators, professionals, experts, and agency officials.

A program of the Minnesota Food Association, the EFC is planned and hosted by a collaborative of farmers and volunteers,  government, nonprofit, and University of Minnesota personnel.

Location: UMN Continuing Education & Conference Center, 1890 Buford Ave., St. Paul MN
