What is FARMCON?

FARMCON is an opportunity for you to connect with like-minded movers and shakers in the ag sector. These are people who have felt the ground crumbling beneath their feet and lived to tell the tale. It’s is an event for learning, working, and some play too. It’s not for everyone though – we’re looking for those ready and willing to take themselves and their businesses to the next level in 2020. It’s a series of hands-on workshops that will encourage you to push the limits of your creativity, discipline, and potential for success.

Most importantly, FARMCON doesn’t end when the conference is over. We are working to build a network of creative-minded people that love rural America and what it stands for, and people that are willing to fight to keep it alive. We aim to give you something you can take home to your team, to help arm you with the tools to needed to create a growing and thriving modern business.Together we can make a difference!

It will change your perspective!

Is FARMCON for me?

FARMCON is for owners, founders, partners, and entrepreneurs that are willing and open minded enough to look at new ideas and new practices. It is not for everyone, though. It is not for those who want to be told what to do, or for those not open to change. If you are looking for someone to make you feel good about what you are currently doing or your current business practices, this is not your conference. This is for those individuals who can’t find people in their offices or back home that will challenge their perspectives or current beliefs. This is for the leaders, the movers, the shakers, the difference makers… Those who have always dared to see things differently. The ones who follow a vision. You value the things that actually matter – family & lifestyle. While others are distracted by the NEW changes, you focus on the significance and excitement of a whole new perspective. Together we can change things!

Relentless optimism is what has always moved our farming families forward. So here’s to those who keep seeing things differently and keep trusting that there is going to be another way. We simply want to help those who want to lead and see the reason to fight for rural America. You are the difference between the world of agriculture as it was and the better place it will be. You are the one that helps push the world forward. We need people like you, agriculture needs people like you, rural America needs people like you.

If you believe you are one of those men or women, we are honored to have you on our team and look forward to seeing you in Kansas City this January. Come ready to work and leave ready to make a difference!
