A Kentucky Proud Homestead
A family growing produce, plant starts and flowers for market. Raising bees, chickens and the next generation of homesteaders.
What We Do
We grow produce and plant starts featured at our local farmers market and at our homestead. Our plant starts are for vegetable growers and bee friendly flowers. When growing food we also look for ways to improve our soil potential, increase a diversity of micro-biome materials in the soil and not create waste or bring harm to our local environment.
We grow a variety of vegetables, flowers and herbs in our garden and grow boxes. Feeding ourselves and providing enough for the market requires a lot of usable space. Preserving all we do not use right away.
As part of promoting a sustainable and healthy ecosystem as we work to grow produce, we introduced bees. The bees are incredible workers that pollinate plants and produce amazing honey. As a result our produce is prolific and our harvest yield has increased.
