  • Why Leitchfield, Kentucky Could Be the Best Place to Live

    Meet Danny, a local farmer with a love for Kentucky sunrises and community. As our My Town series continues to spotlight towns like Leitchfield, Kentucky, we want to know what you love about small communities.


Sitting in the Western fields of Kentucky, Leitchfield exports everything from buttery cheeses to fresh produce, and hosts one of the nation’s biggest fiddle competitions.

Leitchfield is a community that cares, and cares for each other. When it recognized that some community members would benefit from a mobile meal program, a local farmer directed an America’s Famers Grow Communities grant to create “Meals on the Bus,” a program serving meals to those in need. Each school bus is converted into a diner on wheels, making multiple stops and allowing anyone to hop on and grab a homemade lunch. And, along the road, family farmers markets help feed the community as well. Take the right backroads, and you can buy fresh produce off a farmer’s porch, even if they’re not home – just leave the money in a coffee can.
