Our Company

There is an old saying that it takes a village to raise a child. The child of Forrest Caudill, Caudill Sprouting, LLC is now in the loving custody of Pat and Dan Caudill. The downtown Louisville community helped to nurture our company, and now we want to give back by supporting many worthy organizations that help those who would help themselves:

  • Alcoholics Anonymous

And to those who lives and situations are beyond their immediate control:

  • The Healing Place
  • Women’s Community of Louisville
  • Second Harvest

We would like to encourage everyone who has the opportunity to help their community through jobs, time and money to give as we have.
