Farmer-Guru Joel Salatin to Speak at Farmer-Chef Conference

BUFFALO, NY – The third annual Field & Fork Network’s Farmer-Chef Conference is just around the corner and the organization is proud to announce that renowned farmer Joel Salatin will be this year’s guest speaker.

Hosted at the Hyatt Regency Buffalo on Monday, February 21st, the theme of this year’s conference is ‘Bridging the Farm To Table Gap.’ 

“Using locally grown products is a boon to our economy,” says Lisa Tucker, president of the Field & Fork Network. “Regional farms grow nutrient-rich produce, raise animals for food responsibly and employ a local workforce. Restaurants and food-related businesses save money when buying locally and have access to fresh, healthy, high-quality products. It’s a win-win for everyone.”

Salatin has been invited to join the conference to share information on his farm-to-table movement which earned him national attention in documentary films such as FRESH and Food, Inc.

Presented by Wegmans, the Farmer-Chef Conference will focus on seasonal menu planning, various topics in butchery, institutional food procurement, value chain management and appreciating local wines.  New topics this year include urban agriculture, school gardens, aquaponics, and composting/recycling at your business.

The day-long conference is $65 per attendee or $85 per attendee including a marketplace table.
