Organic Farmer & Educator Heather Darby at OFRF's Expo West Luncheon

Heather Darby saved her family's dairy farm in Allburg, Vermont from the brink of extinction by transitioning to a diversified certified organic farm. Now she uses her knowledge and experience to help other organic farmers be successful—with the goal of building a healthy and sustainable food system. 

Joining Heather will be Allie Mentzer, Advocacy Senior Manager at National Co+op Grocers, and Brise Tencer, Executive Director at OFRF.  

In her role as Advocacy Senior Manager for National Co+op Grocers (NCG), Allie Mentzer advocates for federal sustainable food and farm policy on behalf of consumer-owned food co-ops operating over 200 grocery stores nationwide. Altogether, NCG stores are owned and governed by more than 1.3 million shoppers.

Prepare to be inspired by these groundbreakers in the organic industry as you kick-off Expo West with hundreds of your peers, and enjoy the always spectacular all-organic feast created by master chefs Christopher Blobaum, Donna Prizgintas, and Beth Miller.

This event raises money for organic research and will sell out!
