ASU Speaker Series: Arizona’s Food Production, the Facts and Faces of our Farmers

November 15, 2010

On December 2, 2010,  ASU West Campus is hosting a panel of agriculturalists for their “Think” Thursdays in Kiva series. Beginning at 6:00 pm, this presentation is an introduction to some of our Arizona farmers and ranchers involved in food production, food sustainability and food advances in our state.

The panel will share their first-hand experiences and illustrate the strength of sustainable Arizona agriculture through their generational farming and ranching traditions.

Panel to include:
• James Boyle of Boyle Dairies = Representing Dairy
• Glenn Hickman of Hickman Family Farms = Representing Egg Production
• Bas Aja of the Arizona Beef Council = Representing Beef
Don Davidson, DVM = Representing Pork

This presentation offers an introduction to some of Arizona’s farmers and ranchers involved in food production, food sustainability and food advances. A panel will share their first-hand experiences and illustrate the strength of sustainable agriculture through their generational farming and ranching traditions. By 2050, almost seventy-five percent of the world’s population will be urban. And most of us, including Arizonans, are 3 to 4 generations removed from the farm and ranch. As a result we have no contact with the source of our food other than eating it. Arizona farmers and ranchers realize the significant importance of knowing where our food comes from including the excitement of growing and raising our food for an ever-growing population.

The event runs on Thursday, December 2nd, 2010, from 6:00-7:00 PM at the ASU West Campus, Kiva, located at 4701 West Thunderbird Road, Phoenix.
