"Taste of Place" Visits the Farm--The University of Kentucky organic farms are models for better ways of producing food organically.
Each year during UK's spring break, sustainable ag-major students enrolled in a senior level "capstone" class get the chance to see different types of agriculture and food systems around the country by going on a study trip. This year's tour took a northern route from Kentucky through Amish country in Ohio and Pennsylvania to some urban farming in Baltimore, eventually ending up in Western Virginia and Eastern Kentucky. The trip gave the students lots to see and even more to think about.
Watch why the University of Kentucky is buying local foods for its dining halls!
