The Southern Illinois Farming Alliance is a farmer-driven network whose focus is to encourage area farmers to learn from one another. The Alliance provides structure for peer-to-peer educational opportunities for beginning and intermediate farmers through field days and social networking opportunities. Many of our gatherings are hosted on farm and include opportunities to ask questions, share stories, and enjoy good food. Food Works also organizes long-form seminars and special guest speakers for farmers who have established farms and are looking to delve more deeply into specific ideas, techniques, and best business practices.
Those interested in attending events hosted by the Southern Illinois Farming Alliance are encouraged to join Food Works.
