  • A signature industry

    Bourbon is booming, and this week we’ll see further evidence of that as Bardstown - the Bourbon Capital of the World - hosts the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. In 2016, 53,000 people from 44 states as well as the District of Columbia and 14 different countries attended the festival, and we are looking forward to an even more successful 2017 festival.

    As Kentucky’s signature spirit continues to build appeal across the globe, I can’t help thinking about how our region is blessed with the resources and the history that make bourbon so special to our communities.

  • Enjoy Apples this Fall

    With the coming fall season, you will find more apple choices at local agribusinesses or at the grocery store. Not only does fall bring corn mazes, winter squash and pumpkins, it is also a perfect time to visit area orchards to find the freshest apples.

    A medium size apple—about 2 to 2.5 inches in diameter—contains approximately 75 calories and provides bulk in the diet, helping the body digest food. Apples are low in sodium and high in potassium, making them a great natural snack.
