Farm Visit with UK and Fellows with the USDA Sustainable Ag Reasearch and Education Program

by on May.14, 2013, under Uncategorized

Bittersweet Acres was happy to host extension agents from the four regions of the U.S. as  fellows with the USDA Sustainable Ag Research and Education Program and some representatives from the University of Kentucky for a farm visit this morning. We gave a presentation on what we do boarding horses and growing hay at Bittersweet Acres as an example of the horse industry here in Kentucky outside the racing industry. We would like to thank Lee Meyer and Sarah Lovett from the UK College of Agriculture for the invitation to be a part of the program. Below are some pictures from the visit.
