We have been on this land in the hills of Barren County, KY since 1976 and have been making cheese with our own cows milk since 1998. We invite you to take a look around, see what we are all about, check out our online shop, and perhaps plan your next visit to our farm. We want to know about you too, so come and see us!
We have been providing our customers with the best artisan aged country ham products for almost 50 years. Our hams have been carefully cured, smoked with apple and hickory wood, and aged using Woods' curing process
Benton's Smoky Mountain Country Hams are slow cured using salt, brown sugar, and sodium nitrite and typically aged 9-10 months, though hams are available 1 year and older. This time-honored practice dates back to the era of our forefathers, when the preparation and preservation of meat was a way of life and sustenance.
We farm without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or soil. Yes, that's right - NO soil. It's called hydroponics, and it is pretty cool if we must say so ourselves. We use 90% less water and land, and produce around 10x as much produce as a conventional farm would in the same square footage.
I strive to teach you as much as I can about your fish, how it was caught and who caught it. I pursued a master's degree in aquaculture from Kentucky State University so I am big into making sure your fish are caught in an environmentally friendly manner and refer often to Monterrey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch Program for sustainability ratings of your fish.
We are a Certified Naturally Grown market farm growing vegetables, cut flowers, fruit and culinary herbs in Ashland City, Tennessee. Our focus is on growing the highest quality produce at a price you can afford while taking the utmost care of the land.
