  • Establishing a good landlord/tenant relationships

    With falling commodity prices the last few years, things have been crazy in the world of farmland rental. Questions have begun coming into the office about farm leases. How much should I be getting for my farm? Is it right for my tenant to want to lower my lease payments? What about crop share or Flex Leases? The list goes on and on. With all of the discussion about farm leases, I think now is a good time to look back at the basics of farm leasing.

  • LaRue Co Farm Bureau celebrates Food Check-Out Week

    The cost of food in America remains affordable. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service, American consumers spend, on average just over ten percent of their disposable income for food. Kentucky Farm Bureau President Mark Haney said that means the average household will have earned enough disposable income, the portion of income available for spending or saving, to pay for its annual food supply in about seven weeks.
