As a consumer, you face the challenge of making smart food choices for you and your family. Did you know the average meal travels 1,500 miles from the farm to your plate, resulting in lost nutritional value and taste every mile of the way? Buying Kentucky Proud products decreases this distance and ensures that you're eating fresh and nutritious foods while supporting Kentucky's farm families. Buying local products strengthens our local economy by keeping dollars at home and building a sense of community during the process. Kentucky Proud is not only a way to provide safe and nutritious foods for your loved ones, but it is an investment in Kentucky's land, people and its future. "Kentucky Proud Keeps Kentucky Growing."
