Louisville, KY (December 1, 2017) – Boyle County Farm Bureau was honored as one of six recipients of Kentucky Farm Bureau (KFB) Educational Mini-Grant. All six recipients were recognized during KFB’s annual meeting in Louisville.

The Mini-Grant is a special project of the Kentucky Farm Bureau Women’s Program and administered through the Kentucky Farm Bureau Education Foundation. One-time grants of up to $500 are offered to county Farm Bureaus on a competitive basis to help fund projects that result in increased agricultural literacy. Priority is given to those programs demonstrating a need for financial support.
