Attending a conference that was dedicated to producers, provided practical knowledge and attempted to tackle difficult issues was a big reason I decided to attend the 2013 Midwest CSA Conference. My biggest takeaway from the experience was my determination to dive further into the murky, seemingly shame-driven underworld of farm finances so that more light can be shown on such a key area. I believe this is a primary factor in any farm's ability to succeed, and this conference is the only one I've seen that gave it the air time it deserves.
