Louisville Farm to Table

Louisville Farm to Table connects local consumers with the produce of regional farmers with an eye towards encouraging healthy eating – and prospering farms.

Louisville Farm to Table, overseen by a former Courier-Journal food editor, matches up farmers with local consumers in a variety of ways. It coordinates buying clubs for large monthly food purchases; gets fresh farm produce into local cafeterias, restaurants, and other institutions; coordinates weekly produce delivery to various corporate headquarters; and connects farmers with caterers seeking regional ingredients.

Farm to Table further aids the region’s farmers by helping with marketing tasks, such as pricing, packaging and promotion, and distributing samples and price lists to venues. It is also working to expand traditional weekly farmers’ markets around the city.

The program was developed by the city’s Economic Development office, with assistance from area elected officials; poet, author and farmer Wendell Berry; small and large businesses, and county cooperative extension agents.

Among the consumer subscription services linked with Louisville Farm to Table are:

Grasshoppers, which offers food delivery of multi-farm, all-natural and organically grown products with choices that include meat, milk, cheese, mushrooms and eggs as well as produce. Smaller baskets (for smaller families) and a la carte choices available, though there is a minimum $300 seasonal delivery service purchase.

Family Farm Project, which offers two dozen fresh fruits and vegetables, with an option for beef and flowers from farmers in Oldham and Trimble counties. Each week includes five to nine seasonal crops. The 25-week service runs May through October and costs $500.

Barr Farms, which specializes in grass-fed beef and chicken raised without steroids, antibiotics and hormones. This program runs a three-month subscription period and delivers downtown.
