Former University of Kentucky men's basketball player Tayshaun Prince returned to Kentucky last week to help unveil the new Farm to Market exhibit at The Explorium of Lexington. In 2012, Prince lent his name and likeness to a special label of Elk Creek wines to help raise money for the project. "This exhibit should help reinforce the importance of nutritional eating with our young people and the importance of agriculture in Kentucky," Prince said.
