Sue HobbsSue Hobbs farms on her 50-acre farm near Union City in Madison County.  Over the years, she has worked with cattle but now most of the farm is cut for hay.  Over the past five years, Ms. Hobbs has developed a starter vegetable plant business with plant material grown in her 36’ x 80’ greenhouse.  She has already been certified as Kentucky Proud and Appalachia Proud and is working on having the farm certified organic. With the $7,500 SOAR Farm Loan, Sue Hobbs will purchase a loader attachment for her tractor as she begins to sell organic compost in bulk.
