In the rich land of Christian County, wheat is milled for McDonald’s biscuits, corn is turned into ethanol, and grazing cows support the state’s leading dairy. This is Kentucky’s breadbasket, and a river runs through it: the South Fork of Little River.
Second-generation farmer David Brame grows a little bit of everything here, including corn and wheat. The Little River lines his backyard.
“I live here on it. We want to protect these waters. I’ve got as much at stake in them as anybody in this community,” Brame said.
