Welcome to the Allen County Cooperative Extension.  We are a part of the University of Kentucky and Kentucky State University off-campus information network. Let us connect you to UKKSUand the world. We deliver information, education, and solutions. And we grow ideas into better communities, stronger local economies, and healthier lives.  For more information contact us by phone or email.


The Allen County Cooperative Extension Service is an essential resource for our community with over 70 groups using our facilities last year.  Whether you are interested in mainstream farm production or concentrating on niche areas of agriculture, the Extension Service can provide research proven techniques to improve your farm enterprise. Families can also look to Extension for valuable tips and techniques that can be used to maintain your garden, lawn, and home.   Information and educational programs are available to anyone on nutrition, recommended health practices, economic and financial planning information and much, much more.  Youth development through 4-H and other programs provided by the local Extension office is a valuable asset that will help produce outstanding citizens for Allen County in the future.   I urge you to take advantage of the Cooperative Extension Service and all that it has to offer you!”
