Concluding the 2023 California Small Farm Conference, join us at the in-person regional gathering for the Central Coast region! Farmers and local food advocates are invited to Pie ranch for a farm tour, video and potluck to mix, mingle, and enjoy food and drinks as we decompress in good company from this year's virtual conference. Come share your thoughts, questions, reflections, or just reconnect with farmer friends, new and old.
