Louisville, KY (December 1, 2017) – Fayette 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.

Fayette County Farm Bureau was recognized for hosting an Ag Day for approximately two hundred eighth-grade students. The students were exposed to a variety of careers and fields of study in agriculture. 

In addition to Fayette County Farm Bureau’s award, Mini-Grants were also given to the Farm Bureaus in Boyle, Lewis, Marion, McCracken, and Webster counties.
