JACKSON, Wyo. — Central Wyoming College is a proud participant in the Farm to Fork Festival. Through a variety of programs, the college supports regional economic development opportunities to cultivate the local and regional food supply chain from farmers and ranchers to the people.
The College is “making their way” in ground-breaking work in regenerative agriculture at the Alpine Science Institute. CWC recently launched the new Wind River Farm Business Incubator. The program will train aspiring and beginning farmers in high-altitude, semi-arid fruit and vegetable crop production, as well as food and agriculture entrepreneurship. Applications are now open.
On Saturday from 2 p.m to 4:30 p.m, there will be opportunities to tour the Mobile Meat Science Lab, or Abattoir, with faculty from the new Meat Science Program, specifically designed to train butchers and meat processors to support the local food system.
At the festival, the College will also feature its award-winning Culinary Program that introduces students to WYDAHO farmers and ranchers. This educates students to create seasonal cuisine incorporating local, sustainable meat and produce into their menus.
