Family Living

There is no longer a Family Living Agent in Taylor County. However, many printed materials are still available. Please contact our office. You may also find useful information at the links below.

Due to the elimination of the Family Living position, it is unlikely that we will be testing gauges for pressure canners in the Taylor County UW-Extension office after January 1, 2018. However, we will try to find another option for testing in Taylor County. Please check with our office.
UW-Extension will stll have the food preservation bulletins available for purchase.
