Consistent with our mission as the University for Kentucky, we are cultivating partnerships with farms and businesses in the Commonwealth. We are helping sustain these vital businesses, and we are helping them grow.

That’s good for UK; it allows us to provide healthier options in new facilities. That’s good for our state.

That’s part of what it means to be Kentucky’s flagship, land-grant university.
