About Forrest Pritchard

A full-time organic farmer who holds degrees from the College of William & Mary, Forrest Pritchard’s farm, Smith Meadows, was one of the first “grass-finished,” free-range endeavors in the country, and has sold at leading farmers’ markets in Washington, D.C. for more than fifteen years. Pritchard is the author of the New York Times-bestselling book Gaining Ground: A Story of Farmers’ Markets, Local Food and Saving the Family Farm, picked as a top read by The Washington Post, Publishers Weekly, and NPR’s The Splendid Table. The primary blogger for the Facebook page “I Support Farmers’ Markets,” the largest online farmers’ market fan page, he is also a popular public speaker, having given addresses at RAND, Texas Organic Farmers Association, and Weston A. Price International, among others. Pritchard lives with his family on Smith Meadows in Berryville, Virginia.

Forrest Pritchard will speak live on the Sunbelt Ag
Expo’s Hoss Tools Sustainable Living Speakers Stage:

Additionally, he’ll be available for autographs and book sales at the AgAmerica Lending booth in the Georgia Metals Pavilion (RLS-Booth 12).


Forrest will speak about two topics each day of the event.
