Tools and technology can help farmers improve efficiency, save labor and connect with their customers. But many of today’s innovations are built for large-scale production, out of reach for many family farmers.
Join us for the relaunch of our Tech Expo showcasing what’s possible for tech in small-acre and sustainable agriculture. From cost-effective tools to software that streamlines direct sales, practical tractor implements to data management to help you better understand what’s happening beneath your fields.
Whether you’re growing 20 acres of row crops or just tending a quarter acre market garden, managing a small-scale ranch or a family-owned vineyard, come learn the latest in appropriately-scaled Ag Tech, interact with innovators and start working smarter, not harder.
CHECK OUT THESE TOOLS IN ACTION!
