Workshop speakers include EFPP specialists as well as farmers and landowners with farm status. Among the  speakers are organic egg-producer Monica Fitzl of Second Nature Farms; pinto horse breeder Rachel Drennan of Drennan Horse Farm; organic vegetable producer Susan Snow of Snow Farms; and Aldor Acres dairy producer Brian Anderson.
