Iowa Organic Association Field Day

Posted

Farmers, producers, consumers and anyone interested in connecting with Iowa’s organic community and learning more about organic production are encouraged to join the Iowa Organic Association at one or more of our 11 Field Days this summer. These unique on-farm events offer an incredible opportunity to explore an array of organic farming practices and resources developed to encourage and support greater participation in the organic market.

Field Day topics range from organic dairy processing, organic crop production, hands-on field demonstrations, to ISU’s mung bean research efforts, a Seed Savers Exchange farm tour and introduction to new-emerging organic markets for Iowa producers. Whether you’re just getting started with organic farming or looking to transition your operations, our Field Days cover essential topics to cultivate your own organic journey.
