Clark County

Due east of Fayette County, separated by the Kentucky River, is Clark County. Named for the Revolutionary War hero George Rogers Clark, the county was founded in 1729 with Winchester as its seat. Clark County has a proud tradition of general agriculture, particularly cattle and tobacco.

Thoroughfares like Combs Ferry Road, Jones Nursery Road, and Grimes Mill are known for their beauty & history. Clark County is home to Harkness Edwards Vineyards, the world-renowned Kraft Horse Walker company, and the remarkable Nursery Place horse farm.

The community of Winchester anchors the county, boasting historic homes, a charming downtown, and desirable schools.

In addition to Thoroughbreds, Clark County farms produce innumerable products. The primary agricultural products in Clark County are tobacco, corn, and soybeans. Other crops grown in the area include wheat, hay, and vegetables such as tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers. The county is also home to several vineyards and wineries, producing award-winning wines from locally-grown grapes.

Livestock production is also a significant part of the county’s agricultural industry. Cattle and poultry are among the most common types of livestock raised in the area, with dairy farming also playing a small but important role in the local economy.

In addition to traditional farming, Clark County is home to a growing number of specialty crop and livestock operations. A growing number of farms are cultivating heritage breeds of livestock and heirloom varieties of fruits and vegetables, helping to preserve these important agricultural traditions and diversify the county’s agricultural offerings.
