Agriculture continues to serve as a vital role in county wealth and prosperity by providing a firm foundation for the local economy. Union County farms and ranches produce approximately $73 million of agricultural and farm forest commodities in 2007.

In fact, Union County is the state’s premier producer of peppermint oil, Kentucky bluegrass for seed, and certified seed potatoes. The climate and geographic location of Union County provide excellent and unique growing conditions for the many crops produced here, resulting in diverse agricultural commodities and stabilizing the economy of the region.
