Florida Small Farms and Alternative Enterprises Conference


This year we’ve selected three hotels to accommodate our attendee’s reservations needs. They are Walt Disney World® Good Neighbor Hotels, which means they are AAA approved and are inspected on a regular basis to ensure they meet specific Disney quality and service, including a strict standard of comfort and cleanliness. There are also the added benefits such as shuttle transportation to parks, and more. While these hotels vary in distance from the conference location anywhere from eight to 11 miles, all are offering reduced rates to small farm conference attendees.
