Tour Information: During the tour we will visit 3 or 4 buyers in the Lexington area to see what happens behind the back doors! The buyers are: FoodChain, University of Kentucky Dining, a locally sourced restaurant, GoodFoods Co-op*, and Critchfield Meats*. The Buyer Tour allows growers and producers to get a behind-the-scenes look at what happens at various marketplaces. Growers and producers will be able to ask questions, talk with buyers, and get first-hand experience with what it is like to bring product to a restaurant, grocery/retail store, or institutional buyer.
