  • The USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service in Kentucky is encouraging landowners, farmers and producers to visit their local NRCS office now to receive more information and apply for conservation technical assistance and possible financial funding opportunities.

  • Fertile soil is the foundation of all agricultural production.  Without healthy soil, crops cannot grow, pastures cannot prosper, livestock cannot be raised to their full potential, and gardens cannot produce.

    By conducting a soil test.

  • Fall can be a very expensive time of year for families with back-to-school clothing and supplies, fall school activities and several holidays on the horizon. Often the holidays catch up before we have time to plan and one holiday coming up soon is Halloween.

    Halloween ranks as the third most expensive holiday, following Christmas and Valentine’s Day.  This might surprise some people, since typically the holiday does not involve large gift giving or family events. Nonetheless, the price of costumes, candy and decorations can add up.
