Explore Sustainable Agriculture at NKY Forum: Farm-to-Table

Regional farmers, professionals and restaurateurs will come together to discuss sustainable agriculture and new concepts in agribusiness via the Northern Kentucky Forum.

The term farm-to-table relates to fresh, locally grown or produced food. What does farm-to-table look like in practice on a community level? Find out at the NKY Forum on Thursday, Aug. 11 from 6:30-8 pm, which will be at our Newport Branch. You can even grab some produce from local vendors before or after the presentation.

The discussion will explore topics like sustainable agriculture, new concepts in agribusiness, the growing farm-to-table movement and the need for a year-round source of fresh food. For example, regional farmerโ€™s markets are just one way of providing easily-accessible fresh produce to communities. There are also several local restaurants whose menus are centered on locally-sourced products.

Mark Neikirk of Northern Kentucky University’s Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement will serve as moderator.

Panelists include:

  • Jed Portman, 80 Acres Farms
  • David Willox, The Bakers Table restaurant
  • The Berry Center
  • Tiffany Tomeo, Fort Thomas Farmers Markets
  • Anna Haas, Local Food Connection (What Chefs Want)
  • Keith Rogers, Chief of Staff, Kentucky Department for Agriculture
Northern Kentucky Forum

The Forumโ€™s purpose is to foster civil, civic dialogue on topics of community interest. The Forum is a partnership between Campbell County Public Library, The Scripps Howard Center, Boone County Public Library and Kenton County Public Library.
