Thursday night at the Cave City Convention Center in Barren County the Farm Service Agency held an informational meeting for tobacco producers. At the meeting they explained the process of sign ups next Monday for Barren County.

Farmers called the Tobacco Buyout an end of an era for the state that leads the nation in tobacco production. Others call it the beginning of economic growth for Barren County which leads the state in burley production.

June 17 is the last day for farmers to sign up with the FSA for an appointment.
