UPIKE Joins Farm to Campus Initiative

Commissioner of Agriculture James Comer was in Pikeville Wednesday to announce the University of Pikeville's participation in the Farm to Campus program.

UPIKE will now offer products in its cafeteria and book store that are 'Kentucky Proud' meaning they were made or grown by companies and farmers in the commonwealth.

Commissioner Comer says it is a program they are promoting with schools throughout the state.

So far a handful of universities have joined the initiative.

UPIKE is the only one in our region.
