About Mystic, CT 2017

anchorThe annual Convention is heading to the coastal shore of Mystic, CT for a six day/six night event comprising of bus tours, educational sessions, workshops and a business exchange.

It is a full immersion convention that brings farm direct marketers and agritourism operators from all over the continent together for learning and networking in the region.

Convention Highlights

Touring   

Two days of the convention consist of NAFDMA’s highly rated bus tour farm visits. Each bus will have an individualized focus to give attendees an in depth opportunity to network and share subject matter that is important to them. All buses will visit some of the premier farms in the area.

Education 

Learn from the experts in the industry during three days of Sessions and Workshops. You’ll gather immediate, ready to implement ideas and information on how essential business practices can help grow a farm business. Topics include finding the right Point of Sales system for your business, planning and building a new Farm Market, collaborating with others to build your reach and much more.

Immersion

Many of our past convention goers will tell you that the learning doesn’t stop when you step off the bus or walk out of the last session of the day. The idea or Aha! moment that can change your business and your life may be found in a hallway discussion, in a conversation in a restaurant, or a display in a little shop in downtown Mystic.

Business Exchange 

Meet with vendors in this unique trade show that features the latest products and services available for farm retail and on-farm entertainment. Build the relationships that matter to your business success.
