Fresh Fruit, Vegetables, Eggs and Compost

 

Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

We have been raising vegetables and small fruits on our family farm operation for the past 12 years. Every year we have expanded our produce production here at the farm, we are now raising between 20-25 acres of produce. We use a combination of growing practices such as, natural, sustainable, and some conventional approaches. In Kentucky, we have a long and plentiful growing season, which allows us to raise a variety of produce as the weather changes. From the early spring till the late fall we are planting, growing and harvesting our produce. Our farm has become known for its great tasting, high quality produce at several markets, especially our heirloom tomatoes!

Produce we raise:

You can purchase our produce from local farmer’s markets we attend, through our CSA Program, and from the farm. Our farmhouse kitchen is open beginning July 1, Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m. –  6 p.m. We are CLOSED SUNDAYS! We also sell wholesale to restaurant, retailers, and restaurant suppliers.

 

Fresh eggs

Here at Triple J Farm we have been raising laying hens for 7 years now. Every year we have expanded our production. We are now raising over 500 happy, healthy laying hens. Our hens are free range and they are ASH Free. (No antibiotics, no steroids, no hormones.) They enjoy their days roaming about the farm, scratching through pasture and dirt, eating whatever they dig up. In return, we gather beautiful, large fresh brown and blue eggs daily. You can purchase our farm fresh eggs through local farmer’s market, our CSA program and from our farmhouse, kitchen, open seasonally.

 

COMPOST

We have been making compost here at Triple J Farm for 13 years now and by popular demand, we began selling it to the public about 7 years ago. Correctly made compost will have NO SMELL! The concept we use is stacking rows of unusable products such as vegetables, horse & cattle bedding and landscape clippings. These items are then turned on a regular basis, which allows for a carbon to break down the matter. As the heat rises in the rows, unwanted seeds, like weed seeds will die, leaving the good nutrition aspect to come through. We sell our compost directly from the farm, starting in the spring.

Rejuvenate Soil & Grow It Naturally!

Composting is a natural process where tiny beneficial microbes digest and transform organic materials into rich, clean soil. Every year plants and lawns use nutrients & organic matter throughout the seasons. Soils & nutrients are also washed away. By adding compost to your lawns, gardens, landscapes and crops, you are giving back to your soil and increasing bio diversity.Compost adds the following values back to soil: Nitrogen, potassium, calcium, phosphorous and organic ph buffer. It enhances soil for crops, gardens, pastures, turfs, flowers, plants, landscapes and roadsides
