Q: What is Grower’s Own?
A: A farmer-to-farmer exchange.


This year's conference is your chance to learn from the collective experience of southern Idaho farmers; to share your successes and help others to avoid your mistakes; and to ask those questions you have been meaning to about new varieties, potting soil sources, preventative weed control, deer fences, beneficial insect planting, and much, much more.

Space is now limited to 45. Register now to ensure your spot!
