It’s the holiday season and what a perfect time to celebrate food!
Food is at the core of our existence — our lives, our livelihood and our communities. Over the past 50 years, the farm to table connection has moved beyond the farm gate and into the culinary world. Chefs across the country and globally are helping to create sustainable regional food systems, including Kentucky’s own Ouita Michel, featured in this issue of The AgriNutrition Edge Report. Also, another way to celebrate the farm to table connection is by checking out online shopping options for food gifts year-round. Read about some of my favorites in this issue. Finally, as we turn the calendar over to 2023, I share my five food and ag trends for the coming year.
