Robert GuessRobert Clay Guess is a young, beginning farmer who grew up and still lives on his family’s 52-acre farm in Johnson County.  The family presently has cattle which Robert has always worked with.  Robert has decided he wants to expand his portion of the herd and move into farming as a career.  His plan is to breed the cows and sell the calves as well as feed out some cows for sale.  The $7,500 SOAR Farm Loan will be used by Robert to purchase cows and calves to establish his own herd.

The SOAR Small Production Loan Fund is a low-interest financing resource designed to assist small producers grow healthy, nutritional foods so that they can move into commercial production. The goal is to support and educate growers to develop a strong local food system in eastern and southern Kentucky that will be market-supported and result in a profit for the growers.
