Event Address

3101 Lake Farm Rd, Madison, WI 53711

If you’re interested in perennial crops and pastured livestock, come learn what farmers, scientists, and others are discovering—both what’s working well and what needs more work! 

We’re delighted to announce Greg Judy of Green Pastures Farms will a give a keynote presentation.  Greg is the author of No Risk Ranching and Comeback Farms, and a frequent collaborator with the Center for Agroforestry at the University of Missouri.  We are also hosting the world premiere of a mini-documentary film about farmers of uncommon and up & coming fruit and nut crops. Afterwards, a panel of farmers who star in the film and the filmmakers will share their insights and answer questions.

Of course, the Perennial Farm Gathering would not be complete if it didn’t include the popular Nutshell Show & Tells. In five minutes flat, share a little about what you’ve been up to lately, with or without pictures. It’s always fun, fascinating, and great getting to know who else in the room shares your particular perennial passions!
