Welcome to Cherokee County!

In Cherokee County Extension and Research, we always want to learn more about the challenges that Cherokee, County are facing and determine how we can help address those challenges. We listen, learn, and work together with the people from our state and community to build a strong county.

Extension programs present useful information related to agriculture, home economics, youth development, family life, business and economics, healthy living, and much more.

Our online resources offer you a way to quickly access and explore the broad variety of information and educational programs available.
