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.
