The Kentucky Agricultural Council

The KAC is an umbrella group representing all sectors of Kentucky Agriculture. Its 50+ members include non-profit organizations, trade associations, commodity groups, state and federal agencies, and institutions of higher education — all interested in the advancement and development of Kentucky agriculture. KAC works to:

Plan programs for its members and disseminate information that creates an understanding and appreciation of Kentucky agriculture. Serve as liaison between private and public agricultural organizations, the Commissioner of Agriculture, the Governor, and the legislature to develop and effectively utilize our agricultural resources.

In 2006, KAC responded to the Governor Ernie Fletcher’s call and assumed a leadership role in planning to help increase net farm income and to improve the quality of life in rural Kentucky, resulting in the publication of A Pathway for Kentucky's Agriculture and its Rural Communities: 2007 to 2012 Strategic Plan. A second plan followed for 2013-2018: Connecting Strategies to Better Kentucky’s Agricultural Economy and Rural Communities. Today, the KAC continues to work on behalf of Kentucky’s agricultural community and is facilitating discussion to develop the next Strategic Roadmap for Kentucky Agriculture: 2025-2030, to be unveiled in November 2024.

KAC holds quarterly meetings (open to the public) to update members on topics of broad interest and to focus on the ongoing progress of the strategic plan. View our calendar and learn more about membership.
