Join OGRAIN for several events each year offering farmer-focused and research-based information useful to those transitioning to and involved in organic grain production.
Winter 20/21: Stimulating online activities Due to COVID-19 concerns, events this winter will be virtual rather than in-person.
We have great winter programs planned to support your hunger for organic grain farming information and community. Visit this page to see full details on weekly Friday Workshop Series: How to stay afloat in stormy waters – Managing for low organic commodity crop price, and monthly Tuesday noontime discussion groups on either Building carbon-positive organic systems with reduced tillage and cover crops or Food-grade cereal grain production. Also, plan to join OGRAIN at the 2021 virtual MOSES Conference, Growing Stronger: Collaborative Conference on Organic & Sustainable Farming.
Summer Field Days
On-farm fields days have been cancelled for summer 2020. However, regular video field updates as well as numerous very informative workshop presentations can be found on our YouTube page!
Each winter at the end of January growers, researchers and industry representatives meet in Madison to share information and best practices about organic grain production. In 2021 OGRAIN will offer a track specific for those interested in organic grain production at the MOSES conference, check out Growing Stronger: Collaborative Conference on Organic & Sustainable Farming. We do hope to resume in-person OGRAIN winter conferences in the future. View information-filled videos of workshops from the past years of conferences via this link.
“Thanks again for putting on such a wonderful conference. We had so much fun and learned so much. It was a great line-up of speakers that brought very useful and challenging info, but also very encouraging and motivating.” Carl Gaudian, Albert Lea Seeds
“I believe this conference has hit the big time! Just because it is relatively young does not keep it from world class status. Timely topics, great speakers, nice venue, awesome staff!” Paul Bickford, Meadowlark Organics
Videos and powerpoint presentations from OGRAIN conferences offer a wealth of valuable learning. Find them from the OGRAIN Resources page.
