Current Projects

Becky MahonBecky Mahon is farmer near Owingsville in Bath County who farms approximately 50-acres.  Ms. Mahon is a native of Bath County who has been farming all of her life.  Currently her primary products are a variety of vegetables which she sells at the Bath County and neighboring farmer’s markets.  There is no one in the Bath County region that is producing maple syrup or sorghum and Ms. Mahon feels like there is a good opportunity to add these items to her product mix.  The farm has adequate maple trees and her husband and three children will help with the effort.  The $7,500 SOAR Farm loan will be used to purchase maple syrup production equipment and convert a portion of a barn into a sugar house.


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.
