The Estill County Extension Office is currently closed to the public, but we are still accepting soil samples. We have provided a "drop box" outside our main doors. A drawer has been designated for Ag/Soil Testing. Inside you will find forms, soil bags, and information on collecting soil samples. We have also provided links below which contain information on taking soil test samples. Please be sure to provide your full name, address, and phone number on the form when dropping off samples. Please note that due to current closures, we cannot give a definite date on the return of your soil results. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Eric Baker, Agent for Agriculture & Natural Resources at 606-723-4557 or by emailing
