A message from the Commissioner

“This past year saw our community and the world struggle to overcome the devasting impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The challenges highlighted the importance of farm families and our partners. At the beginning of the pandemic, the Kentucky Department of Agriculture promised to do our part to combat the spread and provide help for our agriculture community.
As the state begins to reopen and restrictions ease, our commitment remains the same. Agriculture never stops and neither do we.”
