When Agriculture Commissioner James Comer announced a partnership between the Kentucky Proud program and grocery giant Kroger in November of 2014, Joey and Gina Farmer's Lucky Clover Farm was one of the beneficiaries with the jams and jellies they make. They had been selling at farmers' markets and festivals, but took their business to the higher retail level with some training and the use of a handy commercial food testing facility not far from their Madison County farm.

Kentucky Farm Bureau News - April 2015 - Kentucky Farm Bureau

Where farm chores or even visits to relatives on the farm once served to preserve a connection with agriculture, today’s youth likely never have the opportunity for such direct exposure. Rather than taking the kids to the farm, the Kentucky Agriculture and Environment in the Classroom Program brings the essence of the farm to the kids with the “Agriculture Adventures” program.

A new service being provided by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture helps both growers and buyers by providing

As you make your way on Interstate 64 between Morehead and Mount Sterling, you are likely to take note of the large, green hoop structure that sits just off exit 123 in Bath County. Before Highway 60 takes you on to Owingsville and Salt Lick, it runs right in front of the Kentucky Market Pavilion, a complex of indoor and outdoor spaces designed to showcase the local foods, crafts, culture and traditions of Eastern Kentucky.
