Join us for the 33rd Annual "Georgia Farmers Conference" on February 4-5, 2016 in Albany, Georgia at the Hilton Garden Inn.

The conference will include workshops and plenary sessions on a vast array of agriculture issues and discussions including information from USDA panels, Congressional updates, cooperative development and land retention. 

James Hill

On behalf of our membership, Board of Directors and staff of the Federation of Southern Cooperatives/Land Assistance Fund, the conference this year will be dedicated to the memory of James Hill, a former staff member, partner and tireless advocate for small farmers & landowners.

This conference is one of the vehicles we use to serve our membership, strengthen our partnerships as well as provide valuable information to small farmers and landowners from Georgia and the Southern region.

Val Dolcini

We are also honored to have the U.S.Department of Agriculture/Farm Service Agency Administrator, Val Dolcini, as our keynote speaker. He and our other invited speakers will focus on resources available to small farmers & landowners and the sustainability of our rural communities.
