The mission of the partner growers program is to provide the opportunity for farmers, gardeners, and artisans to grow biodynamic and organic food in a supportive community. We are committed to creating partnerships with farming entrepreneurs. We believe in the importance of sharing our farmland with the next generation of individuals dedicated to growing food that is nourishing and delicious. The exchange of information, resources, and support are a few of the benefits of gathering a group of individual growers on one piece of farmland. Our current partner growers include:
Since 2007, Pavel has operated a vegetable CSA and market garden at Foxhollow Farm. Pavel grows delicious vegetables using organic and biodynamic gardening methods. Subscribers to the CSA enjoy a full box of freshly picked vegetables each week. You can also find Pavel at the Douglass Loop Farmer’s Market during the growing season and Bardstown Road Farmer's Market during the winter.

Duck Duck Beet offers a unique spin on the classic CSA model. Trained chef turned organic farmer Jared Wilkinson uses his love for both the kitchen and garden to offer the community Kentucky's first CSK (Community Supported Kitchen). Every week, Jared uses his naturally grown vegetables and locally sourced, hormone and antibiotic free meat, to prepare meals for you and your family for the busy week ahead.
It's like having your own personal chef and organic farmer!
The Duck Duck Beet CSK is a week to week subscription based service, so you may sign up only when you want to. Jared creates the weekly menu based on what's growing in the garden. The menu is included in his weekly Sunday newsletter. The deadline to sign up for each week is Tuesday at 5pm. If you decide to participate that week, your meals will be freshly prepared and ready to pick up on Saturday. Meals may be picked up to the Bardstown Road Farmers Market or at the farm by pre-arrangement.
