Cherokee County

Making a difference in your life

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.

K-State Research and Extension builds partnerships and provides research-based learning opportunities to improve the quality of life in Kansas. Extension programs present useful information related to agriculture, home economics, youth development, family life, business and economics, healthy living, and much more. We take programs to schools, gardens, community centers, farmers markets, downtown events and other places. Our online resources offer you a way to quickly access and explore the broad variety of information and educational programs available. Connect with us when you need to make decisions that affect your family, community, business, or farm. We look forward to serving you!

We are located on the Fairgrounds in Columbus, Kansas, (124 W. Country Rd.) Our office is open M-F, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Be sure to check us out on Facebook too!
