Join fellow farmers, processors, butchers, value-added producers and chefs at this year's New England Meat Conference. 2017 marks our third conference in what will be the industry event of the year for our region. Check out who among your peers will be sharing their work in sustainable and local meat production.
Together we'll explore how we continue growing the New England meat economies, continue developing robust infrastructure and foster business relationships. With over 25 educational sessions, hands-on workshops, and the illustrious Meat Ball, together we will have many opportunities to learn from and network amongst local and national leaders.
