The Northern Michigan Small Farm Conference is a program of Crosshatch Center for Art & Ecology
Crosshatch builds strong communities through the intersections of art, farming, ecology and economy.
Crosshatch envisions communities that are grounded in place: where people connect through stories, music, art, shared work, and food, and where the economy and culture are rooted in restoration of the earth and its people.
