Application for Agriculture Exemption Number

If you own 10 or more acres and produce an agricultural commodity you are required by KRS to file an Agricultural Water Quality Plan. The good news is it can now be done on-line at https://dep.gateway.ky.gov/eForms/Account/Home.aspx once you set up your account. Need help? Contact Keenan Bishop (502) 695-9035 or the Conservation District (502) 352-2701.

If you have a tax exemption form on file with local businesses to be exempt from state sales tax on agricultural inputs you will now need to apply for an exemption number. The on-line fillable form can be accessed at https://bit.ly/39f5voo or contact Keenan Bishop and he can help you with the process.

Kentucky Black Farmer Fund

COVID-19 has created opportunities and challenges for all small family-scale farmers. For Black farmers, these new demands are piled onto existing challenges, because of these systemic historical inequities. Community Farm Alliance (CFA) is partnering with Black Soil: Our Better Nature to create the Kentucky Black Farmer Fund to shift critical funding into the hands of Black farmers. CFA received funding from Farm Aid which will be allocated completely to the Kentucky Black Farmer Fund.  For more information visit: https://cfaky.org/kybff/.
