Applications are currently available for Kentucky Proud products to be considered for resale at the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea. This is the first step for having products considered for resale at the Kentucky Experience’s Kentucky Proud Product Pavilion during the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. The pavilion will be located on the Kentucky Horse Park grounds in Lexington during the world’s most prestigious equestrian competition Sept. 25-Oct. 10, 2010.
The next deadline is March 31, 2010 for review in April and the last deadline is set for June 30, 2010 with a review in July. The first round of products certified “Kentucky Proud” by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture and other artisan products were reviewed at the beginning of January.
The Governor’s Office of Agricultural Policy, the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea and the Kentucky Department of Agriculture are partnering with the Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet to give Kentucky Proud members the opportunity for their products to be sold in the pavilion.
