In 2023, we're leveling up the APPPA Pastured Poultry Conference to feature:

  • A full day of marketing (January 19)
  • Multiple tracks and formats to accommodate all experience levels (Professional Producer, New Producer, and Homesteaders)
  • Featured speakers each day
  • Unparalleled networking, collaboration, and learning opportunities

Here's what you can expect at the conference. 

  • Workshops lead by experienced experts for beginning producers and homesteaders who want to take control of their food production.
