Governor declares September as Agritourism Month

2004 Agritourism Newsletter, Click here.

"Kentucky has been blessed with an abundance of natural beauty and resources making agritourism one of the most exciting potential markets for Kentucky families," stated Governor Ernie Fletcher. " I am proud to proclaim September as Agritourism Month here in the Commonwealth as more and more Americans are becoming interested in the beauty, heritage and recreational opportunities offered by rural America."

The Department of Agriculture is now looking for someone to serve as the Director for the Division of Agritourism. This is the position created by the legislators in 2002 and funded by the Ag Development Board as an interagency between the Department of Agriculture and the Commerce Cabinet. The State has asked us to help find someone qualified to fill this position. The deadline for applications was August 30th. Call (270) 781-6858 for more information on the initiative or click here.
