The conference is being billed as “the starting point for the next stage of growth in sustainable agriculture – bringing together top-tier capital sources, business leaders and innovators.”
Not sure where I fit into all this but I had such an inspiring time at Sterling College’s Rural Heritage Institute where they invited me and Annie Connole to give a talk about Social Media in the New Food and Agrarian Movement that I want to keep up the grass-fed momentum!
I went out late in the day to check on the cows yesterday. They looked so good, so happy and so healthy. They are thriving on the land. I was also thinking about how farming in New York State has been devastated by consolidation and how this grass-fed resurgence might actually save our rural communities. We are rebuilding something lost, reclaiming the land and our communities. It is with optimism that I go to the Ag 2.0 conference tomorrow .
