The NC Choices Carolina Meat Conference, hosted by The North Carolina Agricultural Foundation, Inc., supports a growing community committed to advancing market opportunities and increasing customer access to pasture-based meats. Farmers, chefs, butchers, and industry leaders convene for over two-days of unparalleled networking, hands-on training, and technical and business assistance.

The Carolina Meat Conference partners with Farm-to-Fork! A Carolina Meat Conference ticket automatically buys you admission to the Farm-to-Fork picnic, or what Bon Appetit Magazine called “The Country's Best All-You-Can-Eat Feast!”

Join us as we merge two nationally recognized local food events for a jam-packed weekend of hands-training coupled with amazing food.

Conference participants will join over 300 other local food lovers for a dinner picnic feast that includes a lineup of some of our best culinary professionals and local farms. Farm-to-Fork tickets can also be purchased separately on the Farm to Fork website for those not attending the Carolina Meat Conference. Stay tuned for more details.
