2022 Professional Pastured Poultry Conference


The sixth annual Pastured Poultry Conference offers an immersive pastured poultry experience for farmers and homesteaders of all size and experience levels. The conference format is a hybrid approach, which means we’ll offer standalone virtual events for two days in December and our signature in-person three day conference in January in Jacksonville.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Will the Preconference sessions (Dec 4 and Dec 11) be recorded in case I can't make the session?
A. Yes. The virtual preconference sessions on Dec 4 and Dec 11 will be recorded and available for later view for paid registrants. 

Q. Can I attend the in-person (Jan 16-18) conference virtually?
A. We do not plan to live stream the in-person event in January. This is an in-person event.

Q. Where is the January conference being held?
A. This is the same hotel and conference center we used in 2020. It was previously known as the Lexington Hotel & Conference Center. They have since rebranded to Southbank Hotel at Jacksonville Riverwalk and became a Marriot Bonvoy Hotel. 

Q. What is the registration deadline for the in-person event in Jacksonville?
A. Registration prices will increase on Dec 15, 2021 for the in-person conference in Jacksonville. Registration will close on Jan 7, 2021. Some concessions can usually be made for late and walk-in registrations, but registering on time allows us to accurately source enough local food for our meals.

Q. What kind of food do you serve and is it included?
A. Registration costs include lunch on conference days and dinner on Monday. We source local ingredients from independent, pasture based farms for all meals that are included in your registration. If you've never eaten at an APPPA conference, you're missing out on the best conference food on the sustainable agriculture conference circuit. 


Sponsor Inquiries

For the conference this year, we are are encouraging sponsors to customize their sponsorship packages. This will allow sponsors to tailor the conference experience to align with business objectives while providing value to the attendees. 

We launched our conference format six years ago with the goal to provide an experience that would be tailored by the attendees. We're extending that same tailored experience to sponsors.

We look forward to working with you to customize a sponsorship package that meets your goals.
