Beyond the Farm

First-ever Dinner Is Grown event brought together farmer, media and consumer voices

On May 2, at an intimate dinner on an old dairy farm, Paul Rea, SVP of Agricultural Solutions North America, hosted farmers, media and consumer voices for an engaging discussion about the challenges of modern farming and agriculture. The dinner was prepared with local ingredients supplied in part by the farmers in attendance, including sweet potatoes and strawberries from Leggett Farming Partnership.
