Enjoy an evening together with the greatest farmers in Texas!
TOFGA members are at the forefront of organic agriculture and are worth celebrating! The TOFGA banquet is a time to share ideas and connect. Relax with old friends and new over a delicious, locally-sourced dinner that will highlight what our great state has to offer.
We're thrilled to welcome Mark Kastel as our keynote speaker!
Mark Kastel is co-founder of The Cornucopia Institute and one of the liveliest, most interesting and provocative voices in the organic food and farm policy arena today. His message about the authenticity and integrity of organics is empowering and sure to engage all conference participants. Cornucopia is a national farm policy research and outreach group based in Wisconsin and dedicated to promoting economic justice for family-scale producers and building bridges to the retailers and consumers who support ecological and organic farming.
