About Sponsoring Savoring Kentucky

We love and value our sponsors:

Savoring Kentucky welcomes site sponsors who share these commitments:

  1. Kentucky-grown food and drink, in all their wonder and bounty, belong on every Kentucky table, whether the table is at home, school, restaurant, hospital, prison, office, or state park.
  2. Once there, Kentucky food and drink will improve personal pleasure, health, and Kentucky’s independence and self-sufficiency.
  3. Just as exciting and important, eating and drinking from Kentucky’s abundance strengthens our farm families and improves farm income. This adds to our communities’ wealth and makes life better for all of us.

Savoring Kentucky’s sponsors are leading our Commonwealth in supporting food and drink that is grown near where we eat and drink, using agricultural practices that build environmental health and personnel policies that support a decent wage for all sectors of the food economy. As the Slow Food movement has it, our sponsors dedicate themselves to food and drink that is good, clean, and fair.

We are proud to have the support of people who are building on Kentucky’s heritage,  climate and agricultural assets with a long view, building toward our great-grandchildren’s future well-being.

How sponsorship affects our content:

  1. Savoring Kentucky addresses any topics related to Kentucky food and drink, whether or not a topic is sponsored. Many farms, chefs, vineyards and wineries, distilleries, restaurants, stores, markets, and Kentucky products that are not sponsors appear in Savoring Kentucky, and always will.
  2. When Savoring Kentucky writes about any aspect of Kentucky food and drink, the approach is nearly always positive and encouraging, whether the focus of a post is a sponsor or not.
  3. Links to sponsor sites or information about sponsors are included in blog posts often. Sponsors also benefit from extensive cross-promotion of Savoring Kentucky posts on social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, and Google+.
  4. Any post that mentions a sponsor will include a footer noting the sponsor relationship. In doing this, we are following the Federal Trade Commission’s Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising, as we understand them, from FTC, 16 CFR Part 255. Beginning July 1, 2012, posts or pages that mention a Savoring Kentucky sponsor, and any social media Savoring Kentucky originates about those posts or pages, will disclose the sponsor relationship.

We encourage Savoring Kentucky readers to patronize our sponsors. Like us, our sponsors savor Kentucky, and they make it an amazing place to live.
