Local Gifts That Just Mean More

That nip in the air, the smell of cookies fresh out of the oven, college basketball rivalries, and more holiday specials on TV than you can shake a stick at: It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas across the bluegrass.

We all have that one person on our list who just seems impossible to buy for every year. Consider a gift card to a Kentucky Proud Buy Local restaurant this year for your favorite fickle friend or family member! Our Buy Local restaurants are committed to purchasing fresh ingredients from Kentucky farms. That means when you purchase gift cards from Kentucky Proud Buy Local restaurants, you’re supporting our family farms and the local economy, not to mention investing in the promise of a tasty meal.

Stocking your loved ones’ freezers with locally sourced Kentucky Proud meat can be a great way to spoil your family and friends even after the holiday decorations are stowed away! Our Kentucky Proud meat producers can provide anything from chicken and beef to bison, all raised right here in the Commonwealth.

Need the perfect holiday host or hostess gift? Spread some Christmas cheer by purchasing a bottle of Kentucky Proud Wine from one of over 70 small farm wineries in the Commonwealth. You can even grab a bottle or two for yourself – we won’t tell…

We know the “stuff” can be overwhelming during the holidays, especially if you have little ones to buy for. So, if you’re looking for an experience to give this holiday season, you’ll definitely want to check out a few of the many Kentucky Proud Agritourism venues. Spend a night away at a family farm bed and breakfast, enjoy a trail ride on a Kentucky farm, or even visit one of Kentucky’s many distilleries. They’re all wonderful and thoughtful gifts for your family and friends this holiday season. If you play your cards right, they may even take you along with them when they cash in on their experiences!

No matter who’s on your shopping list this season, there’s a locally crafted gift from Kentucky farms that is sure to make your loved one’s holiday extra special.
