Carrie McIntosh and Ashton Potter Wright: Leaders in Kentucky's Agriculture and Food Economy

Listen to this episode here.

For this episode, guests Carrie McIntosh and Ashton Potter Wright joined Chris and Ouita in the WLXU studio, bringing together one of Kentucky's most venerable champions of agriculture—the Fayette County Farm Bureau Federation—with one of the newest, Bluegrass Farm to Table. These two groups, along with Fayette Alliance and the Cooperative Extension Service of the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment (CAFE) will host a four-course, locally sourced, Italian influenced dinner in the vineyard at Grimes Mill Winery on August 19. Chef Ouita will be in charge of the food, which will served with wines from Grimes Mill Winery and beer from West Sixth Brewing. Buy tickets for the Field to Table dinner here. The dinner benefits FoodChain.

In addition, Carrie described the work of the Farm Bureau in advocacy and education for agriculture. Ashton updated listeners on the work of Bluegrass Farm to Table, particularly the new Kentucky Double Dollars program that benefits local farmers and SNAP recipients by extending the amounts SNAP recipients in several parts of Kentucky have available for buying locally grown foods.

Enjoy!
