Serving KentuckY. . . On a Plate!

Savoring Kentucky's purpose is to showcase Kentucky's splendid sustainable agriculture—and involve you in it. On this site and through our weekly radio show, Hot Water Cornbread, we champion Kentucky's farmers and cooks, chefs and producers, and tell their stories. We honor our invaluable brain trust and brawn treasury of activists, researchers, policy makers, teachers and common sense prophets. We share recipes.

We cherish the great pleasures of eating and drinking what comes from Kentucky’s soil, water, air, and growers. We work to be free, to enjoy food self-sufficiency and to reduce our food chain's vulnerability to events that happen outside our borders. We work for a fair shake for all those who produce our incomparable Kentucky food goodness.

If you are not lucky enough to live in Kentucky, you undoubtedly live near people like the ones in this site: sustainable agriculture visionaries and trailblazers. We hope you will want to meet them, support them and join their work to cultivate soil, crops and community for as far into the future as we can imagine.
