The Annual Fayette County Farm Bureau Legislative Appreciation Dinner was held this year at the Fasig Tipton. Dinner for the evening was provided by the renowned Ouita Michel. She has a true commitment to local food and our farmers and we cannot thank her enough for leading the way and setting an example for other restaurants and Chefs to buy local. This dinner is hosted every year for current seated officials representing Fayette County. It is a great opportunity for us to build relationships with them so that when they have issues come up dealing with agriculture, they can call on a producer to get facts and answers first hand.
