Meetings & Events

2016 ADC Meetings & Events
The Ag Development Council and the Chester County Economic Development Council cohost a forum series on agricultural issues several times a year. Forums are open to the public and topics cover a wide variety of subjects including regional agricultural trends, advances in farming technology and ways to improve farm profitability. We also host an annual ag mixer to give people the opportunity to meet and network with individuals from a range of agricultural backgrounds and interests. Please check back for more information on our next forum.
