Haggen Expo Building, NW WA Fairgrounds,

The 2018 Small Farm Expo will be held on February 24 at the Northwest Washington Fairgrounds in Lynden. This open house event will include indoor exhibits demonstrating the latest in agricultural technology, products and services, as well as seminars and demonstrations. Designed to be an informal meet-and-greet and networking event, visitors will find opportunities to engage with exhibitors, experts, veterinarians, and other producers, as well as discover new resources to help improve and expand healthy agricultural and livestock production.

2018 Keynote Speaker: Dr. David R Montgomery

Professor of geomorphology at the University of Washington and author of Growing a Revolution: Bringing our Soil Back to Life, The Hidden Half of Nature: The Microbial Roots of Life and Health, and more. Combining ancient wisdom with modern science, Montgomery offers a vision where agriculture becomes the solution to environmental problems, helping feed us all and cool the planet.

The event also offers an opportunity for vendors, manufacturers and exhibitors from across the farming industry to showcase their agri-business products. Participants will be given the chance to connect with supporting organizations, learn about the latest news affecting producers, ask and answer questions, and network with other farmers who share their concerns and desire to be successful.

Hot and fresh food will be available for purchase from Good to Go Meat Pies!

 

Hosted by Whatcom Conservation District and Whatcom County Public Works, the event is free and open to the public.
