In a focused, hands-on setting, women convene in North Carolina for over two days of training, from on-farm management to butchery, by the nation’s top professionals. Courses are designed to help women tackle real and perceived barriers in their career by offering educational, technical, and business planning assistance while also providing opportunities to build and expand professional networks.

This year, we’re doubling the size of the conference to better accommodate the growing demand.

NC Choices, an initiative of the Center for Environmental Farming Systems, promotes sustainable food systems through the advancement of the local, niche and pasture-based meat supply chain in North Carolina. NC Choices provides information, technical assistance, educational programming and networking opportunities for farmers, extension agents, meat processors, buyers, distributors and consumers.
