The Arkansas Grown Conference & Expo was held at the Hot Springs Convention Center, January 25-27, 2024.

The Arkansas Grown Conference & Expo is for all parties interested in Arkansas agriculture, the state’s largest industry, and focuses on the farmers and producers who grow for our local food system.

The Arkansas Department of Agriculture collaborated with eight Arkansas associations to host general sessions and workshops on many topics that are important to our farmers in the local food system.
