Welcome!

The University of Georgia Taylor County Cooperative Extension Office extends lifelong learning to Georgia citizens through unbiased, research-based education in agriculture, the environment, communities, youth and families.  

Taylor County faculty and trained support staff provide educational programs as well as a number of ag testings  services to the citizens of Taylor County.   Our Ag agent provides unbiased, research-based info that helps clients make critical decisions.  Extension recommendations focus on maximizing production and profit, while minimizing environmental impacts.  Our 4-H Program Assistant creates and organizes youth educational programs including competitive events which will assist young people to develop citizenship, leadership, responsibility and life skills through experiential learning. We also provide information to help citizens live healthier lives through home food preservation, and assistance with diets for seniors and diabetics.  

UGA Extension operates through a unique partnership with Taylor County, the University of Georgia, the State of Georgia and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.  Backed up by specialists and a network of resources, Extension Agents have been on the job in Georgia since 1914.
