The Governor’s Local Food and Agriculture Summit, was a very successful gathering of farmers and ranchers, economists, marketers, policy leaders, and other agriculture experts from Montana. 

The goal of the summit was to explore ways to build Montana’s food economy. The Grow Montana Food Policy Coalition and partners including the Montana Governor’s Office, Montana Department of Agriculture, and Montana State University, organized the event October 28-29 at MSU in Bozeman. 

Those who couldn’t attend can watch the conference’s two keynote addresses online by going to https://foodsummit.ncat.org/ . The speakers were:
