It is almost time for the 2021 Southern Peanut Growers Conference. Listen in on a preview interview of the conference with Florida Peanut Producers Association Executive Director Ken Barton.
Ken starts out talking about the theme of this year’s conference, “Bringing Vision to Peanuts.” After that we go over the schedule which is similar to past conferences. Things will start out on the first day with a unique check-in that includes fresh grilled PBJ sandwiches and lots of ice cream and toppings, including peanuts. This is very much a family conference so this start allows a lot of people to visit with the full families. Then we have an evening welcome reception and dinner. The opening general session on day two is followed by another session, lunch and a free afternoon with family oriented activities. We’ll get into the “State of Peanut Policy” on the final day after awards and then lunch and the annual conference golf tournament. This is going to be a great conference!
The blog will have fresh photos, interviews and sharing whatever goes on. We’ve been blogging the conference since back in 2008! You can still find old stories and photos by looking at the links on the blog homepage.
