The Eco-Ag Conference & Trade Show sets the standard for agriculture education with the volume of useful, practical and measurable information you will learn on site. From our intensive all-day Eco-Ag U sessions that start our conference to our shorter workshops on Day 3 and 4, each has a very specific ROI that you will be able to apply immediately back at your farm. In addition, our keynote speakers are changing the world, and help us connect the work we do in our operations to the global goal of a healthy, mature society.

When you join us in December, you will get an experience to connect the dots between ecology and economics. This connection between economy and ecology extends into the roots of our organization, as we were founded by an economist, Charles Walters. This year, we will build upon that, featuring talented new speakers who are breaking into the eco-agriculture community, while hosting the stalwart voices who helped shape and mold the modern methods we apply today. From cover cropping to soil testing to fertilization tactics to livestock integration and beyond, we cover what you need to know to build strong soil health.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2021 Eco-Ag Conference & Trade Show … in person, again.

Eco-Ag U Workshops

Get the most out of your experience by signing up for an Eco-Ag U workshop (or two!) – the registration fee includes your choice of pre-conference workshops plus the entire conference and trade show. Spend a full day with an instructor diving deep into a topic that’s important to you. You will have direct, small-classroom access to the top minds in eco-agriculture, where you can learn the real details behind their success, and ask questions specific to your farm or operation.

Filled with shorter, 1- to 2-hour sessions and amazing keynotes, you can follow single tracks ranging from soil health to farm management to livestock and beyond, or hop between them all. Stay tuned to our agenda as these sessions come online in 2021.

Testimonials

CHECK OUT WHAT OUR ATTENDEES ARE SAYING ABOUT THE ECO-AG CONFERENCE & TRADE SHOW

“This was the best conference for ‘wealth of information’ I’ve ever attended.” 

“Love this conference! It’s one I greatly look forward to each year. I enjoy the new and more seasoned presenters. I usually catch one of the film screenings – this is the first year I didn’t even catch partial – too much to do. Really enjoy the cocktail mingle, meet and greet, the supply of water, the quality of the vendors, speakers. The layout and flow of the whole conference is one of the better ones and why it’s easy to come back year after year.”

“The vast amount of knowledge at the conference was palpable and I feel fortunate to have learned from some of the leaders in this movement. Thank you for giving Eco Ag a space in the farming world and for giving voice to the regenerative movement. I have so much to think about and apply to my farming operations. THANK YOU!!”

“The Eco-Ag U sessions are why I come and am willing to travel long distance. Very much appreciate being able to go in depth with one presenter for 1 or 2 days.”
