Sponsor the Conference

One of the largest food and farming conferences in the nation.

  • In 2023, we will partner with the Northeast Community Seed Conference & Celebration to offer 70+ workshops on our virtual platform which broadens access by eliminating travel costs, offering sliding scale ticket pricing, on-demand workshop recordings, interpretation services, and more.
  • NOFA-NY’s annual winter conference draws hundreds of farmers, food system professionals, educators, advocates, researchers, homesteaders, and gardeners who are passionate about building a better food system.
  • The virtual platform, including the conference website and mobile app, will remain open until Friday, April 14 to give you more visibility than ever before.
