The Arkansas Department of Agriculture’s Arkansas Grown program is partnering with Arkansas agriculture associations and organizations to host the first-ever Arkansas Grown Conference & Expo!

The Arkansas Grown Conference & Expo is open to all parties interested in the Arkansas agriculture industry, the state’s largest industry, and focuses on the farmers and producers who grow for our local food system.

The Arkansas Grown Conference & Expo will incorporate annual meetings for several associations into the educational schedule, making it possible for farmers and producers to attend a number of meetings at one time, eliminating the need for multiple trips.

In 2022, the Arkansas Horticulture Society voted to leave its 24-year relationship with Oklahoma horticultural groups and join the Arkansas Grown Conference & Expo for their annual meeting and expo. The Arkansas Blackberry Growers Association, Arkansas Farmers Market Association, Arkansas Grape Growers Association and Arkansas Agritourism Association have all committed to hosting their annual meetings during the collaborative event.
