Michele Payn, CSP

“Food is at the center of so many traditions. Food is essential to our bodies. Food deserves to be celebrated, enjoyed and shared. The same could be said about the truth in food.” – Michele Payn

Michele Payn, CSP, is the author of the newly released Food Truths from Farm to Table, who speaks from the intersection of farm and food to bring clarity and common sense to the grocery store. Already named an Amazon #1 New Release, Payn’s new book brings an unheard voice in the highly emotional food debate and helps readers understand how food is really produced, answers food critics and points out how food marketing and labels are often half-truths or even “less-than-half truths.”

Known as one of North America’s leading farm and food advocates, Payn has an in-depth understanding of both sides of the plate and is passionate about getting back to the truth in food raised the right way, by the right people, for the right reasons. She is an in-demand media resource whose work has appeared in USA Today, Food Insight, Food & Nutrition Magazine, Grist, and others as well as on NPR and CNN. She has earned the Certified Speaking Professional designation, awarded to <10% of speakers worldwide and holds degrees in Agricultural Communications and Animal Science.
