Local Food Connections Workshop is Nov. 19


Our Local Food-South Central Kansas will host a Local Food Connections Workshop Nov. 10, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Sedgwick County Extension Center in Wichita. Local food connections can be the most challenging step for food businesses and producers interested in making local food an option for consumers. For consumers it can sometimes be challenging to find local food, especially year round. Busy schedules can add yet another tier to the challenge. Local producers, grocers, restaurateurs, institutional food buyers, other food businesses, and locavores (supporters of local food) are invited to attend this daylong event that will focus on networking, and building marketing skills and business relationships to simplify these challenges.

Featured morning workshop sessions will cover the following topics: Planning Crops for Consistent Yields, Regulations of Selling and Buying Animal Products, Post-Harvest Handling, Liability Insurance for Market Farms, Niche Marketing for Livestock Products, Nose-to-Tail Meat Use, Local Food as a Marketing Tool, Love Local Food, Eating by the Calendar, and Preserving the Harvest.

In the afternoon a panel of local food buyers and growers will provide opportunity for questions about buying and selling local food. Diana Endicott of Good Natured Family Farms in Kansas will be the featured Keynote afternoon speaker.

Registration and a full schedule can be found at www.kansasruralcenter.org.
