And, you'll have a chance to learn more about it this month at ASAP's (Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project) Business of Farming Conference sponsored by Ward and Smith. This event brings professional and aspiring farmers together to share resources, tools, and information by offering grower-buyer meetings, business and marketing consulting sessions, and workshops.
