Welcome to Courtney Farms

Welcome to learning about life on the farm and all that goes with it….whether that is wiping potting soil out of the mouth of a 2 year old, doing payroll at 5:00 a.m., chomping at the bit for the weather to cooperate, savoring the taste of the first watermelon of the season, or being thankful that the tobacco sold well and that we had a bumper crop of beans…..life here is always interesting, and privileged for all to experience.

You may have come to our website in search of our beloved CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program.  With much regret, we are not offering our traditional CSA program for this season.  This decision was not an easy one, but one that had to be made in order to put our young family first.  Our dynamic field to family dinner table relationships will shift as we won’t be delivering weekly harvests.  With our understanding of your need to connect to a real local farm, your understanding of our family and business needs, together our constant quest of understanding America’s food system (both production and consumption)…we hope you experience what our farm has to offer. Like others, our farm is a work in progress and along with folks like you, we are a joined Community Supporting Agriculture! Our quest has not changed. We want you to learn, ask questions, understand what vital role the farmer and the consumer play in producing food.

Our family farms to feed LOCAL and GLOBAL, it is pretty unique! We provide watermelons for lunch in schools where our children attend, fresh squash and zucchini to be served to those eating dinner in a local hospital, and locally from eggplants to be purchased at major grocery store chains scattered around. We also raise soybeans and corn that may end up being shipped out of the country on a barge, sendup in a box of tortilla chips, provide feed for chicken farmer in another state, used to make a box of crayons, or enjoyed through a glass of one of Kentucky’s finest bourbons. Our small herd of beef cattle is growing every year and were are on the verge of being able to stock seers local families’ freezes for the year. As our family grows, so does our farm. We continue to figure out ways to produce more with less with the resources we have, maximizing opportunities and contributing to our communities, far and near, to be self-sufficient in raising our own food.

Enjoy your journey with us. Be apart of what we do. Let our website be a virtual extension of our farm to you; let our land be an experience through Touch the Dirt Day, let our planting, tilling, and harvest be your food source throughout the year.
