Thank you from all of us at NOFA-NY for joining us at this year’s Organic Dairy & Field Crop Conference!
To all the participants, presenters, sponsors, food donors, trade show exhibitors, , board, staff (both NOFA-NY, Inc. & NOFA-NY, LLC), thank you for taking the time and braving the weather to join us at our 6th annual Organic Dairy & Field Crop Conference.
This was our first year expanding to a two-day event for learning, networking, and information exchange, with intensives on Friday morning. This year we honored Michael & Gayle Thorpe, NOFA-NY’s Farmers of the Year. We also want to give a very special thank you to our Keynote Speaker Jack Lazor, founder of Butterworks Farm, who drove all the way from Vermont to give an inspirational talk about how he and his farm have adapted to changing times.
Thank you again, to all of our sponsors!
