The MarketReady Producer Training Program, developed by the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service at the Martin-Gatton College of Agriculture, Food and Environment, is an educational opportunity for local food producers to enhance their business tools for success.

The program is open to farmers and producers, processors, county extension agents and anyone interested in selling their farm products to restaurants, grocery stores, schools or wholesale distributors.

The first training on May 2, 9:30 a.m. - 2 p.m., is at the Woodford County Extension Office in Versailles. The second training on May 8, 9:30 a.m. - 2 p.m., is at the Kentucky Farm Bureau Office in Louisville.

Farmers and producers will gain assurance regarding the expectations set by potential buyers, including restaurants, grocers, schools and more. Extension agents will learn how to better assist farmers and producers in their county.  

“This training program is for those who are ready to take the next step, and for those who are just thinking about different market outlets and opportunities,” said Columbia.

The MarketReady Producer Training includes program materials, complimentary lunch, and access to a buyer’s panel. Registration is free and limited to 25 participants per session:
