When was the last time you were at an event in Columbia County attended by several hundred people from widely varying sectors of the community who got together and focused in a substantive, constructive and friendly way on a major issue confronting our county? For me, it was eleven months ago, when I attended the second annual Farming Our Future conference at the Taconic Hills High School. It was a great day of learning, discussion and networking focused on the future of farming in Columbia County. The conference brought together a diverse array of experienced farmers, aspiring farmers, people who own farm land or are looking to acquire it, professionals who work in farm-related businesses and non-profits, professionals from the food industry, educators, political and community leaders, and people whose only connection to agriculture is that they love living in a rural area and want to ensure it will remain so. It was a terrific event. And I wrote an article that explained why anyone with a connection to farming in Columbia County or an interest in it would have loved being there.

This year, the third annual conference will be held on Saturday February 22, and I figure it’s more useful to tell you all about it now, before the fact, so maybe you can make plans to be there. If you are interested in these things, you really ought to try to make it.
