For over ten years, the South Dakota Local Foods Conference has provided education and networking for both producers and supporters of local foods. This ever-growing conference is a celebration of South Dakota farmers and eaters. It’s our chance to highlight the latest work being done to improve and promote local foods in South Dakota and an opportunity to connect with producers, consumers, retailers, restaurants, chefs, and resource providers from all across our state.

Conference organizers include Dakota Rural Action, South Dakota State University Extension, South Dakota Specialty Producers Association, Bear Butte Gardens, North Central Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (SARE), USDA Natural Resources Conservation Services, and others. We are proud to support our local producers, consumers, and the communities they sustain.
