The Kentucky Agricultural Development Fund (KADF), in statute, is administered by the Kentucky Agricultural Development Board (KADB). The mission of the board is to invest these funds in innovative proposals that increase net farm income and affect tobacco farmers, tobacco-impacted communities and agriculture across the state by stimulating markets for Kentucky agricultural products. This includes finding new ways to add value to Kentucky agricultural products and exploring new opportunities that will benefit Kentucky farms now and in the future.

The KADB meets the third Friday of the month to review and take action on applications for county and state Agricultural Development Funds. To learn more about KADF funding opportunities, the KADB, and County Agricultural Development Councils visit the links to the right.
