Extension Offers Program to Help Families Begin to Transition the Farm

There is much more to consider when transitioning a farm than just dividing the property.

Many people work their entire lives to purchase a farm and develop a farming operation, but it dissolves upon their passing because of a lack of planning and communication.  The agents of the UK Cooperative Extension Service have developed a program to help families plan for transitioning both management and ownership of their farming operation.  The program is divided into 3 one hour sessions delivered via Zoom.

Bring Your Garden Indoors

If the thought of facing a long winter without straight-from-the-garden freshness makes you sad, weep no more. It’s easy as tomato pie to grow your own produce indoors.

There are a number of indoor gardening systems on the market today. They range in price and require anything from 2 square feet in space all the way to a multi-tiered 5-feet wide rack of shelving and grow lights. But if you don’t have the money or space to invest in one of these systems, don’t worry. There’s plenty you can do without them.

Ways to Deter Black Vultures

Black vultures are native to Kentucky. As a result, they are present here year-round, but you may be seeing more of them now for a few reasons. Their overall populations have increased in the state in the past couple of years. They are also a migratory species with a recently expanded range that stretches from Canada to South America, so you will see a lot more birds in Kentucky during the fall and winter as the birds from the northern range migrate south.
