Advancing Organics In Kentucky: Adopting Practices, Increasing Resilience and Strengthening Systems

Thank you for a fantastic Conference!
From January 25-27, 2024, OAK’s 13th Annual Organic Farming Conference returned to the KSU Harold R. Benson Research and Demonstration Farm in Frankfort, KY. Hundreds of farmers and local food system professionals participated in workshops, educational sessions and farm tours and connected with inspiring speakers, current research, peer farmers and regional suppliers.

In 2024, OAK’s conference program featured three days of inspiration from local and regional speakers, useful Trade Show resources and abundant networking opportunities to empower and support farmers and food system innovators.

OAK's annual conference programming focuses on agricultural production systems, farming techniques and practices and the interwoven threads of community, conservation and collective action, each inseparable from the sustainable agriculture movement. Now in its 13th year, the conference includes a growing audience of hundreds of Kentuckians and neighbors active in the region’s food systems: farmers, researchers, nonprofit professionals, federal and state agency partners, allied service providers and conscious consumers working collectively to build a local, resilient and healthy food system for us all. We invite you to be a part of it!
