The conference is a family event for the growers who get the opportunity to mix business with pleasure. It’s always fun to go around and take photos of the adorable little ones enjoying ice cream with lots of peanut toppings.
“It’s our biggest conference we’ve ever had, largest attendance. We’ve got more sponsors, we’ve got more going on,” Don says. “What’s really important is we’ve got a fantastic program this year.”
That includes an update on the farm bill situation from the Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee on Saturday, Atlanta Rhythm Section on Saturday night and lots of great sessions in between. Don says they are grateful to the sponsors who make it all possible. “Sponsors make this so farmers can afford to come,” he said.
