Join us on June 27th, 2024 to celebrate the Impact you've helped Renewing the Countryside make in the past 20 Years!

20 Year Anniversary Celebration, Thursday, June 27, 2024



We host and partner in events throughout the year to meet the needs of farmers, food producers, and rural entrepreneurs. 

 Our three large annual events are: 

The 2023 Farmland Summit brought together farm leaders, change agents, policymakers, and practitioners from around the upper Midwest to dig into critical challenges and opportunities related to farmland access and transfer. Participants gathered to learn, share, and connect around an array of issues such as financing, tenure, conservation, and transfer. 

In April, 2021 we held the first-ever Home-Based Food Entrepreneur Virtual National Conference, which provided four days of sessions along with a platform for networking that began in advance of the event. Recorded sessions are still available, and the second event was held in 2023.

In 2019 we were excited to be the local host for the fourth National Farm Viability Conference, a national gathering for creating resilient food systems, and profitable food and farming businesses.
