  • Farmers markets provide a chance for the public to get high-quality, fresh foods and support farmers in their community. Selling at the markets gives farmers a chance to tell others about their operation and agriculture in general.

    In the past few years, people’s interest in farmers markets has climbed. The renewed interest is likely due to people trying to improve their diets and increasing awareness about the environmental benefits of buying foods from local farmers. 

  • Just Monday morning I saw my first termite advertisement on cable TV. Pest control companies are gearing up for an active termite season. Unseasonably warm springtime temperatures and rain have brought about earlier insect activity. This is typically when we see many winged termites emerge inside homes and other structures according to Mike Potter, UK Extension Entomologist. Termites swarm from the colony to disburse, fall to the ground, find mates and start new colonies in the soil.
