Conferences & Speaking


For over 25 years, Paul & Sandy have traveled all over the country speaking at the top farming conferences in North America. More than that, they have run and helped create many of their own conferences over the years and Sandy currently sits on the committee for the NEVG conference and runs the popular farmer-to-farmer sessions during the bi-annual conference.

Paul & Sandy’s focus much of their teachings on efficiency, marketing, business, winter growing, and soil health. They love helping beginning and experienced farmers learn how to be profitable and plan for the long term.
