Rice County

Welcome to Rice County

Your local Extension Office is a great resource for finding the information that you need. Have a gardening question? Check out our Lawn and Garden section. If you are interested in joining 4-H or becoming a volunteer, our 4-H and Youth section has all of the information you need to get started. Check out the Crops and Livestock section. Health and Nutrition features a wide variety of resources for food preparation and safety. You will want to check out the information found on our Home and Family and Community Development sections, as well.

We're here for you, as always

No matter where you live in Kansas,
K-State Research and Extension is nearby – no matter the circumstances. We are a steady voice during trying times.
Together, we can do this and will emerge stronger than ever.

We are open!

We ask that visitors please sanitize their hands upon entry and respect social distancing guidelines.
