Campbellsville University has become the sixth college in Kentucky to join the commonwealth’s “Farm to Campus” program. That means the university will work with the state’s Department of Agriculture to put more Kentucky Proud-branded products on the shelves of the Campbellsville University bookstore and more locally-grown food in the university’s dining halls. 

Agriculture commissioner James Comer joined Campbellsville trustees Tuesday at an announcement ceremony.

Asbury University, Eastern Kentucky University, the University of Louisville, Morehead State University, and the University of Pikeville are also classified as "Farm to Campus" universities.
