AGCAST: Alstons Bring "Farm" to the Tables at UA Rich Mountain

Luke and Deedee Alston, the 2017 Arkansas Farm Family of the Year, are participating in the "farm-to-school" movement by providing fresh vegetables and produce from their Holly Springs Homestead farm to the University of Arkansas Rich Mountain Community College in Mena. The Alstons are both alumni of the school and the produce they supply is used at the Mountain Range Grill restaurant on campus. In this edition of Arkansas Agcast, the Alstons and Student Union Manager Jason Wood discuss this partnership and future plans for expansion.
