Another Successful Minnesota Organic Conference, St. Cloud Minnesota

Crop Fertility Services had another fantastic weekend at the Minnesota Organic Conference, in St. Cloud, Minnesota. For 2018, the conference was held Thursday / Friday January 11th and 12th.

Conferences are a great time for us to catch up with our farmers from around the state and this year was no different. In addition to visiting with farmers, we had a great time chatting with our friends from MOSES, Blue River Hybrids, Scholar, F.W Cobbs, Albert Lea Seed, and many more.

Keynote presentations for the 2018 MN Organic Conference were from Michael Ableman and Heather Darby. Both presentations preceded a phenomenal lunch. The Minnesota Organic Conference does a wonderful job of featuring food from local, organic farmers (one of our favorite parts from the show).

We’re excited for next year!
