Proceedings of the 6th National Small Farm Conference
- Proceedings of the 6th National Small Farm Conference
The 6th National Small Farm Conference, "Promoting the Successes of Small Farmers and Ranchers", was hosted by Tennessee State University, the University of Tennessee, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Agencies. Successes in small farm activities were shared, as well as innovative ideas in research, extension and outreach to strengthen collaboration and partnership among state specialists who work to ensure that small farmers and ranchers not only survive, but also thrive in today's economy. The conference also served as a forum to discuss the results of research geared towards addressing challenges facing small farmers and ranchers. Strengthening partnerships created at the five previous National Small Farm Conferences was a priority for the Memphis meeting. This conference consisted of short courses, oral and poster paper presentations, exhibits, success stories and educational tours within Memphis and its vicinity.
