Current Projects

Barry GregoryBarry Gregory is a long-time vegetable farmer in Wayne County who sells through the local farmer’s markets, directly from the farm and to local retail outlets.  From his 45-acre farm, Mr. Gregory has a focus on tomatoes, growing both in greenhouses and in the field.  In early 2015, Mr. Gregory had three of his greenhouses collapse during the heavy snowfall.  With the proceeds of the $7,500 loan from the SOAR Small Production Loan program, Barry Gregory will rebuild the three greenhouses and make other improvements.


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.
