Debi Kelly Takes New Position

I wanted to let you all know that I have accepted a new position with MU Extension and will no longer be working in Columbia. My new position will be with the Jefferson County Extension office as the Regional Horticulture/Community Development Extension Specialist with a focus on local food systems. My office will be in Hillsboro, MO so I will be relocating. I start on April 21st, so I have a busy few weeks coming up.

I will no longer have statewide responsibilities but will be focusing my programming efforts in Jefferson County, St. Charles, and St. Louis Counties. The e-newsletter "Ag Opportunities" was part of my responsibility with the Beginning Farmer program and since there will be no one filling that position the future of the e-newsletter is undetermined at this time.

Over the years, many of you have emailed or called to say what a wonderful resource this newsletter has been for you. Those comments have meant a great deal to me. Knowing that I was able to make a difference in your farming operations, no matter how small or how large, has brought me happiness.

I wish you all the best in your farming ventures (or adventures as many of you say!). My email address will be the same,, so feel free to drop me a line any time. Please keep in touch.

Debi Kelly
