Farm to Table Conference for Mid-South Producers
The Farm to Table Conference provides a forum for farmers, consumers, and food entrepreneurs to discuss ideas and opportunities for developing the local food system of Memphis. We believe that a thriving local food system will connect farms to local consumers, increase healthy food consumption and stimulate economic development and job creation in Memphis and the Mid-South.
