Eat Well, Shop Smart: Reading Food Labels
USDA organic. Natural. Non-GMO. Cage-free. Partially produced with genetic engineering. Certified Naturally Grown. Kentucky Proud. Gluten free. These are just a few of the flood of food labels you’ll find in the grocery store and at the farmers market. Join Mac Stone at Elmwood Stock Farm to learn exactly what each label means so you can make your own informed food decisions.
The event will include a tour of Elmwood Stock Farm’s vegetable and livestock areas, as seeing first-hand how USDA certified organic crops and animals are raised will offer a better understanding of these labels. Guests will also learn about genetically modified food labeling laws—one going into effect in July affects us all—and the changes you might see in the years to come.

Elmwood Stock Farm, in Georgetown, Ky., is a 6th-generation family farm that began as a producer of Black Angus breeding-stock cattle. The cattle are still an important part of the farm ecosystem and farm business, though over the past decade, the farm has branched out to produce a variety of organic vegetables, fruits, meats, eggs, tobacco and even compost. Elmwood is committed to healthy and wholesome production of superior, high-quality, fresh farm products. Organic certification and close family involvement ensure that safe and sustainable farming practices are followed, livestock are well cared for, and land and water conservation remain a priority. Elmwood’s produce, eggs and meats can be found at farmers markets, local restaurants and grocery stores, and through its CSA programs in Kentucky and Ohio.
