  • I have been to a lot of meetings and been a part of a lot of breakout sessions. That being said, these sessions were the most informative that I have been a part of.

  • Wonderful! Clear, simple, impactful, meaningful—every farmer should go through it at least once.

  • I thought I might be out of place as an older and smaller farmer. That was not the case—I felt welcome and that the information could be applied even on my scale.
