We're glad you're here for the Black Soil experience! These year-round events include Farm Tours, Farm to Table Dinners and Off-Season Workshops where you are connected Kentucky's black farmers/growers/producers. Black Soil events allow attendees to celebrate and educate themselves on the narratives, experience, and expertise of our partner black farmers.

Representing 1.4% of the primary farm operators in the state, black farmers account for less than 600 of the more than 76,000 agricultural operations in Kentucky.

The mission of Black Soil: Our Better Nature is to reconnect black Kentuckians to their legacy and heritage in agriculture.

By bringing together urban families with rural and urban-based black farmers/growers/producers across the state, we help introduce opportunities in agriculture that promote self-sufficiency, encourage healthy living, and activate cooperative economics.

Our vision is to help foster a greater market share for black farmers and producers as they provide healthy food options to a larger consumer base.
