American Pastured Poultry Producers Association Invites Pastured Poultry Farmers to Network, Problem Solve, and Build Relationships

Jacksonville, FL—APPPA expects international attendance by pastured poultry farmers at the Professional Pastured Poultry Conference, scheduled for January 19-21, 2020, at the Lexington Hotel and Conference Center in Jacksonville, FL. The conference brings independent, family-owned pastured poultry farms together for three days of peer-to-peer learning opportunities. Conference organizers encourage attendees to bring their struggles and their success stories because there’s someone in the room who has solved your problem or needs your help.

American Pastured Poultry Producers Association (APPPA) has been providing farmer education and networking opportunities to the community since 1997. As the pastured poultry community grew more experienced in the production, marketing, and processing segments, APPPA identified an unfilled need. Experienced community members needed advanced conference programming that went beyond the basic startup and the how-to information provided by the typical conference workshops. The Professional Pastured Poultry Conference fills that need.

In 2017, the Professional Pastured Poultry Conference was launched in a rodeo arena in Hillsboro, Texas. Those two days flipped the conference script and made the attendees the keynote speakers as several dozen farmers discussed issues in real-time without a single PowerPoint. In 2020, the conference format is expanding to be welcoming and relevant to farmers at all scales and experience; however, spontaneous, attendee-led discussion remains the event’s signature attraction.

American Pastured Poultry Producers Association is a member-based trade organization advocating for pastured poultry through farmer resources and consumer education. More information about the Professional Pastured Poultry Conference can be found at
