You can’t have Kentucky food without Kentucky ingredients. So I start off the new year talking with Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles who was just re-elected to a second term in November. Commissioner Quarles is a native of Scott County and has been involved in Kentucky agriculture his entire life.

In this episode I travel to Frankfort to discuss the state of Kentucky agriculture, the accomplishments of Commissioner Quarles’s first term and his plans for his second. We discuss the Kentucky Proud program, buying local and alternative crops. We also chat about Kentucky hemp, bourbon, wine, and beer.

Plus Commissioner Quarles talks about the important Kentucky Hunger Initiative.
