Register now for the
3rd Annual Florida Local Food Summit!
The 3rd Annual Florida Local Food Summit, taking place September 8th-10th in Orlando, will gather our state's top food and farming entrepreneurs, policy makers, chefs, foodies and local food fans!
The Summit is your one-stop-shop for all things local food and farming. There will be farm tours, advanced education, farm-to-table meals, a Grower's Festival, home gardening classes and so much more.
Fourth generation cattleman Will Harris of White Oak Pastures in Georgia will be our keynote speaker. He tends the same land that his great-grandfather settled in 1866 and made the audacious decision to return to the farming methods his great-grandfather had used 130 years before.
Since Will has successfully implemented these changes, he has been recognized all over the world as a leader in humane animal husbandry and environmental sustainability.
