The farm to table movement is growing in Arkansas. Many communities have created farmers' markets, established community gardens, started serving farm fresh food in school cafeterias and more. Arkansas is seeing an increased interests in sustainable agriculture and locally grown foods. A growing number of farms are producing a wide range of locally produced vegetables, fruits, grain, nuts, seeds and livestock. The UA Division of Agriculture offers programs and host events that can help support local food systems development in your community. Look around for upcoming events and resources to assist you with increasing local foods in your community. http://www.uaex.edu/business-communities/local-foods/default.aspx
