Minot Holds Food Conference

Posted: Updated:

While it may be cold outside, farmers have been inside thinking about their growing season.

On Friday, farmers and consumers met at the Grand Hotel in Minot for the 2014 Local Food conference to discuss ways to keep growing their local economy.

The Ag Commissioner, Doug Goehring along with several other speakers came to talk about ways to better their crop business.

"You don't control the weather, and you don't control the markets so you're going to be at the whims of Mother Nature. And, that fluctuating price for products, so they're going to continue to find ways to be economically viable," says Doug Goehring, Ag Commissioner.

"We sometimes give away thing it can be profitable, and we're trying to convey that message in a big way that this can work as a business," says Marvin Baker, N.D. Farmers Market & Growers Association.

Day two of the conference on networking begins tomorrow at the hotel. Registration begins at 8 a.m.
