    The citizens of LaRue County support agriculture and its farmers as well as, if not better than, any other county in the state. Several local LaRue County farmers along with the LaRue County Farm Bureau thought it was time that they show thanks for the support they receive from the community.

    We’ve all been caught behind a farmer on a tractor on the square in downtown Hodgenville a time or two, but this time, they are going to be blocking all traffic into the square.
