Description

Take a guided tour with farmer Mac Stone for a look at the crops and livestock on this organic family farm outside Georgetown, Kentucky.

Event Details

Elmwood Stock Farm produces an abundance of food in the midst of summer in Kentucky. It’s a speciall time of year to be out at the farm, and we welcome you to share in the splendor. Come out and see the farm, meet the farmers and experience the rhythm of regenerative agriculture. “The farm, the plants, the fields—everything’s teeming with life. It’s like National Geographic right before your eyes,” says Elmwood Stock Farm’s Mac Stone of the activities taking place this time of year.

The Elmwood Stock Farm Traditions Tours are designed to educate adults and children alike about how food gets from the farm to your plate. The two-hour tour will touch on many of the regenerative-agriculture techniques employed at the farm, including greenhouse production systems, pastured poultry and pigs, grass-fed cattle and sheep, vegetable-growing, soil-building, ecologically sustainable agriculture, and beneficial insects, to name a few. Come ready for an outdoor adventure!

Together, we will traipse through the fields, gaze up into the sprawling old oak trees, inspect the soil, and discover the many sights and sounds (and smells!) of Mother Nature at work.

About Elmwood Stock Farm

Elmwood Stock Farm, in Georgetown, Ky., is a sixth-generation, USDA Certified organic family farm that began as a producer of Black Angus breeding-stock cattle.

Now a Wagyu-Angus cross, the cattle are still an important part of the farm ecosystem and farm business, though over the past decade, the farm has branched out to produce a variety of organic vegetables, fruits, meats and eggs.

Elmwood is committed to healthy and wholesome production of superior, high-quality, fresh farm products.

Organic certification and close family involvement ensure that safe and sustainable farming practices are followed, livestock are well cared for, and land and water conservation remain a priority.

Elmwood's produce, eggs and meats can be found at farmers markets, local restaurants and grocery stores, and through its CSA farm-share in Kentucky and Cincinnati.

Book a Private Tour or Virtual Event

Elmwood Stock Farm also offers customized tours for groups of all ages interested in food, farming, gardening, nature, livestock and poultry, and the food-health connection. Please contact the farm to book your own tour or to book one of the farmers as a speaker for your virtual event.
