Veg event delivers results for growers & suppliers

VegetableGrowerConnect is an event designed for large growers in the West and decision makers from the nation’s leading suppliers to come together for two-and-a-half days of meetings and networking.

American Vegetable Grower® magazine’s third annual VegetableGrowerConnect was held in Park City, UT, Nov. 15-17. The essence of the event is one-on-one private, 50-minute meetings with growers and suppliers.

Before coming to the Connect, each grower was interviewed to determine his farm’s specific needs. The growers were then matched with suppliers who created specific presentations to address their individual needs.

To kick off the event, a grower roundtable was held where attendees discussed issues such as labor and ways to control costs, as well as how to get the next generation involved in agriculture.

“It was nice hearing the perspective of the older generation of growers and hearing the challenges from growers in other areas. It also was encouraging to find out they have issues similar to us,” said Danny Coultas of Coultas Farming in California, about the roundtable.
