Farmer-to-Farmer Potluck
Wednesday, November 16-9 PM
“Planning for Now and the Future: Ensuring Farm & Ranch Operational Continuity”
Auburn Veterans Hall, 100 East St, Auburn
Join us for a potluck dinner and networking with fellow Placer/Nevada farmers and ranchers. Take the opportunity to learn from other local producers about how they kept their operations going while coping with serious illness/injury, death of a partner, or succession to the next generation. Given events in the past couple of years in our ag communities, it may not be something we really want to talk about, but realistically, we all should be thinking about it and making plans.
We will provide soft drinks, coffee, and paper goods. Please bring a dish to share: Last name A – I: Salad or Side dish, J – S: Main dish, T - Z Dessert
Reservations are required. Please register at
