“As we continue to see increases in consumer demand for locally produced, homegrown products, the Kentucky Farm Bureau’s Certified Roadside Farm Market Program is helping to meet that demand while providing selling opportunities for our farm families,” said Mark Haney, president of KFB. “We are certainly proud of all this program has done to connect Kentucky’s farmers to consumers who want to buy and prepare local food for their families.”
Markets certified through this program are identified by the cornucopia logo and listed in the KFB Certified Roadside Farm Market Directory. The program also provides collective advertising, promotional items, education tour opportunities, and other marketing benefits with the intent to increase the net farm income of member markets.
Brochures that list all of the Certified Roadside Farm Markets across the state are available at Kentucky welcome centers, state resort parks, local chambers of commerce/tourism centers, and county Farm Bureau offices. Consumers can also go to the 2017 Certified Roadside Farm Market website – kyfb.com/roadside – for a complete list of markets.
