NSAS provides sustainable agriculture information and networking opportunities through events including an annual Healthy Farms Conference as well as farm tours, field days, and sustainable events/workshops (both described below).
We believe that farmers learn best from other farmers, and we apply this "peer learning" philosophy throughout our educational work. Farm tours also provide wonderful opportunities for all that share an interest in good land stewardship, conscientiously raised food and our Nebraska farm and food economy to see what Nebraska's creative and dynamic farmers are doing! All of our events feature innovative growers who share their experience and knowledge about food and farming systems. Our events include time for formal and informal discussion and networking. We also serve local, sustainably-raised food as often as possible.
Weekly Events and Opportunities
Previously called the "Nebraska Young Farmer Nights," we have changed the name to "Farmers Night Out!" Same ideas, same awesome opportunities! We will kickoff the season with our first"night outs" in the beginning of June. The "Farmers Night Out!" are held at farms (urban & rural) throughout Nebraska and typically involve a farm tour/pasture walk, a potluck meal, and a time for building community and connecting.Details
Where you can find NSAS
Slow Meat brings together ranchers, farmers, butchers, chefs, eaters and more to share ideas on how we can turn the herd toward meat that is good, clean and fair for all. Initiated in 2014, we will reconvene in June of 2015.Complete information
Our focus this year is on health — of your livestock, of your soil, and of your operation. We’ve assembled a panel of experts to guide you through an experiential day on a local ranch, in addition to our general membership meeting and a special presentation from Savory Institute on their hub program. And, as always, we’ll have great food and drink and plenty of time for networking.Details
