What is the best way to ensure a thriving local food economy in the Mid-South region?
Please join us for the Fifth Annual Mid-South Farm to Table Conference February 9, 2015 at the Eugene Woods Civic Center at RiverPAC. This year’s conference will focus on the specific needs and challenges of food production and sale throughout the Mid-South. We invite you to join us in building a better local food system – one that supports profitable small-scale agriculture, fosters the creation of a thriving local food economy, and puts healthy food on the table of all of our residents. Ellen Polishuk, a nationally-renowned consultant on sustainable small farm business operations and profitability, will be presenting on maximizing income, decreasing costs, and effectively managing labor to increase farm efficiency. To farmers in attendance, she will also be available for on-farm consultations after the conference for a significantly discounted rate.
The Farm to Table Conference was established with the vision that a thriving local food system will strengthen farmer livelihoods by connecting more farmers to local consumers, improve access to fresh produce, increase healthy food consumption, and stimulate economic development and job creation in the region. It is designed to provide a forum for farmers, consumers, entrepreneurs, and other local food stakeholders to discuss ideas for developing local food systems in Memphis and the Mid-South.
