Learn and engage about exciting sustainable food and ag businesses in Northern California. The casual setting of a working farm is a hands-on illustration of what it means to bring money back down to Earth. Through the farm tours, changemaker talk, entrepreneur showcase and community lunch, new relationships and friendships are formed that often lead to collaboration, funding and other connections. 

Full Belly Farm is a certified organic farm located in the beautiful Capay Valley of northern California. They are nationally recognized for fostering sustainability on all levels, from fertility in our soil and care for the environment, to stable employment for our farm workers. They are committed to be good stewards of this farm and soil, for this generation and future generations.
