Hi! You can bring your soil sample to our office and we will mail it to UK for testing. We are in Middletown at the East Government Center at 200 Juneau Drive, Suite 400.

If you are unsure of how to take a sample, here is more information: http://www2.ca.uky.edu/agcomm/pubs/agr/agr16/agr16.pdf

Also, the Jefferson County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is offering a soils test incentive program to offset the cost for Louisville Metro residents. The SWCD will provide up to 2 vouchers per household to cover the processing fee for a standard soils test. You must request the soils test voucher(s) from the Conservation District office. Email your voucher request to: jeffersonswcd@gmail.com The email should include your name, physical address, phone number and if you want one or two vouchers. Then bring the voucher with you when you bring in your soil test.

If you have any others questions, let us know. Thanks!
