Kentucky's Department of AgricultureThe Kentucky Department of Agriculture works with Kentucky farmers interested in marketing their meat products by assisting them in understanding the regulations involved in direct marketing meat products. Through cooperative efforts with Partners for Family Farms, we have helped assemble a directory of Kentucky processing facilities, and published the first Direct Marketing Directory for farmers with products to sell, as well as restaurants and retailers wishing to buy Kentucky products. Our work with the University of Kentucky has also been vital in assessing the profitability and acceptability of local meat products. We are currently working on an advertising campaign to promote Kentucky restaurants that purchase products directly from farmers.
