AGRItunity 2010 is coming to Sumter County on Saturday, January 23, 2010! This conference and trade show is in the 4th year of providing opportunities for farmers, ranchers and people interested in agriculture to learning, network, meet suppliers and explore the possibilites of starting or changing an agricultural operation. This year our keynote speakers will be Al and Erin Rosas of Rosas Farms in Ocala. Their successful operations includes grass-fed beef, eco-retreats and other pragmatic organic products. Breakout sessions include heritage vegetable production, farm food safety, grass-fed beef production, horse health, beekeeping, stone fruits and much more. The trade show will include many suppliers that are important for farmers, as well as large equipment and livestock displays.


AGRItunity 2010 will expand this year to include Friday activities such as a farm tour and a local foods cook-off! The cook-off will feature local chefs preparing locally grown foods and you can be the judge!
