We are a micro-farm, less than six acres located in Woodburn, Kentucky. We have approximately two acres in cultivation and grow year round in two unheated high tunnels. The tunnels allows us to grow cool weather crops throughout the winter months as well as plant heat loving crops such as tomatoes and peppers much earlier in the spring than would be possible in our climate. We grow a variety of seasonal vegetables, many unusual and hard to find varieties and specialize in gourmet lettuces, greens, salad mixes, and root crops.
Our farm supports a flock of laying hens and two roosters that free range and produce the most delicious farm fresh eggs we’ve ever eaten but we may be a little bit biased. The chicken’s diet is supplemented by feed sourced from a local mill and does not contain hormones or antibiotics.
We currently have two bee hives on the farm. The bees pollinate the crops and supply us with a small amount of honey. We maintain an area of native wildflowers for the bees and never supplement the hives with refined sugar or High-Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS). This natural method of beekeeping results in small batches of honey with complex and varying flavor characteristics.
We grow using natural, sustainable and ecologically responsible growing practices. Many of our varieties are heirloom varieties and we save a lot of our seed from one year to the next. Seed saving allows us to use seed stock from plants grown in our area that have adapted to our local climate.
We do not apply pesticides prophylactically and only use Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) approved insecticides. We have found that careful cultivar selection and sound growing practices all but eliminate the need for synthetics.
Our mission is to grow the most nutritious food we possible can while raising awareness about the benefits of locally grown food.
Four Season Farm
Walking through our 6 acre farm, you will find various garden plots that will accommodate each season’s crops. The high tunnel near the back of the farm allows us to extend our growing season through the winter with no supplemental heat. It also allows us a head start on our spring planting and harvest. We have an ever-growing flock of pastured laying hens that provide us with plenty of farm fresh eggs as well as 4 active bee hives for honey and pollination.

We sell only what we grow and produce on our farm. This is the most important component for us. We do this to ensure our food has been grown and harvested in a sustainable manner. We harvest when the crops are at their peak to offer our customers unparalleled flavor, quality and freshness.
We are Michael and Zach, who began gardening because we both value a healthy lifestyle and understand the importance of knowing where our food comes from. However finding quality local food in our area was and is difficult. Getting freshly grown produce meant a drive to Bowling Green or Nashville to a farmers market so we decided to grow as much of our own food as possible. In the summer of 2014 an abundance of tomatoes and summer squash from our home garden led us to become market gardeners.
Our friends and neighbors Kellee & Craig McMillan at the Macedonia Homestead let us sell our extra vegetables with their grapes and sweet corn. This was the beginning of a great relationship. We are eternally grateful to Kellee & Craig for giving us the opportunity to grow with them at the homestead in 2015.
As the end of Zach’s graduate program neared we were torn with the notion of moving to another area where more opportunity for better paying jobs exist. We made a not so easy but very conscious decision to stay and make Simpson County our home, do what we love and to improve our communities access to quality local food.
We know there is a lot of hard work ahead with many obstacles to overcome but our commitment to each other, to our home, our environment and to our community along with our agriculture and business backgrounds will guide us as we continue on this journey.
