AgriMissouri and Missouri Farm Bureau are hosting the 2014 Missouri Agritourism Conference for members, agribusiness owners and operators, their suppliers and stakeholders – bringing together the best of all things Missouri-Made, Missouri-Grown and Missouri-Fun! We’ll gather in Kansas City this summer to connect, learn and experience the outstanding diversity of Missouri agriculture, from bed-and-breakfasts and farmers’ markets to corn mazes, float trips and the rich tastes of heirloom recipes.

This conference is made possible through the partnership and support of the more than 2,200 AgriMissouri members and Missouri Farm Bureau.

What to expect:

The conference is an opportunity to network with other Missouri producers, from those growing fruits and vegetables to raising livestock to opening their doors to agritourism. It also offers an opportunity to connect with resource providers throughout the state, from label makers and distributors to new markets.

Farmers’ Market Track:
The Farmers’ Market and Community Development Track will be focused on how to create, manage and adapt your farmers’ market or community agriculture project to meet member and community needs.

Agritourism Track:
The Agritourism Track will focus on all aspects of building a successful agritourism operation.

Sunday Evening – Networking Reception
Monday – Full day of educational sessions, panel discussions and speakers
