Kenny WarfieldKenny Warfieldfarms 17-acres in the Girdler community of Knox County where he currently raises 11 cows.  He has been a small farmer all his life and would like to expand his cattle operation.  In order to grow the business and purchase additional cows, he needs to install additional fencing and build a hay storage area.  He estimates this will cost about $4,000.  With any of the $7,500 in SOAR Small Farm Loan funds remaining, Mr. Warfield will purchase more cows.

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.
