SCFM Farmer Spotlight

SCFM Farmer Spotlight:

Please join us in welcoming Farmer Joe to the SCFM. Joe is raising healthy animals to provide meat at our market. He is another innovative farmer trying to raise quality & standards in his area of farming. We are looking forward to his wide variety of meats.

After graduating from UK & being in the workforce for 5 years, I felt as though I wasn’t in the right place to make a positive impact in the world. I took over the family farm in 2013 & began changing it from a traditional hay and cattle format to a more diversified operation. I added laying chickens, broilers, turkeys, sheep, & pigs. We began to rotate & graze the animals. We have seen a huge difference in production of the farm. Now we raise grass fed/finished beef, pastured eggs, broilers, ducks, & turkeys all on certified organic pastures. The poultry is fed a supplemental non-GMO grain in addition to the pastures. I also work with neighboring farms for our grass fed/finished lamb and pastured pork. I absolutely love working on the farm and being able to raise healthy food for people to enjoy! I have been in markets in Danville and Lexington the past couple years and I am excited to join the SCFM.
