“In breakout sessions, farmers, distributors, processors, managers, investors, chefs, community organizers, engaged citizens, and foodies alike were forced to ponder big questions, like how soil health could destroy (or save) the world, and how political, financial, and regulatory policies could propel or inhibit the systemic changes needed to power the Local Food Movement nationally and in our region.”

- Kyle Lahman, Hawkins Family Farm


Local Food Lunch

“As attendees started eating, smiles erupted and dialogue ensued. It was reminiscent of a traditional family meal where family members shared and celebrated life. In this case, it was a “Community Meal,” where individuals had an opportunity to enjoy, appreciate, discover, and promote the foods we love here in Northeast Indiana.”

- Jim Huffman, Walnut Hill Catering


Expo & Social Hour

“After a full day of immersion in the ins and outs of local food, the Expo & Social Hour offered an excellent time to sample local food, meet farmers and chefs and have delightful conversation with a diverse and knowledgeable group of people.”

- Emily Kindig, Local Food Advocate
