About the Organic Grain Conference

The Land Connection is hosting our 3rd annual Organic Grain Conference & Trade Show in Champaign, IL, on February 13-14, 2019. This is Illinois' only conference dedicated solely to organic grain education and networking.

Last year, 145 farmers and researchers, and 13 exhibitors gathered to network and learn about the organic grain industry, certification process, and risk management. This year, the conference is expanding! We are offering a day-long intensive course on organic certification on February 13, followed by the main conference and trade-show on February 14. On day 2, we are increasing the number of presentations, adding a track covering the latest research in organic production and moving the exhibit hall into a dedicated space to allow networking to continue unimpeded throughout the day. We are also expanding the hours dedicated to the exhibit hall with a two-hour uninterrupted block over the lunch break.

With an anticipated attendance of more than 150 farmers traveling from across Illinois and the surrounding states, your sponsorship support will reach a captive audience of eager customers and help make this our best conference yet.

We have a variety of sponsorship and exhibit opportunities available. Not sure if one of the benefit packages is right for you? Contact Mallory Krieger at to customize a package to meet your needs.

Thank you for helping grow the organic grain industry in Central Illinois.
