“Farm-to-table” – or “farm-to-fork” – is a growing social movement that promotes serving locally grown food in restaurants and school cafeterias. But it’s not just about proximity. The movement is also driven by an emphasis on food safety, freshness and traceability – or the ability to track where your food came from.

In this issue of CornsTalk, learn how Nebraska’s farmers are positioning their operations for the next generation.
