Jason Montgomery

Jason Montgomery is a cattle farmer in the Tyner community of Jackson County who farms approximately 80-acres which he owns.  On the farm Mr. Montgomery keeps 20-50 head of cattle.  He breeds some or buys cow/calf pairs or calves.  His goal right now is not so much to grow the herd but to improve the farm in preparation to being able to handle more cows.  In order to do this, he needs to make improvements to his barn, upgrade his equipment storage building and his hay shed, extend and improve some fencing for more pasture, and make soil enhancements.  The $7,500 SOAR Farm Loan will help him accomplish this.

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.
