Partner Grower Program
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 gardening methods on fields using herbal preparations developed by Rudolf Steiner. 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.

Christy O’Connell and Mandy Thompson
After years in the floral shop industry, Christy decided to start Pure Pollen Flowers, a full service, a freelance floral business offering locally grown and native flora. Her journey eventually led her to join the Foxhollow Farm community. Three years ago, Christy paired up with one of her besties, Mandy, and the two of them now work together as partner owners to lovingly grow their business. As first generation female farmers, they’re both committed to learning and implementing sustainable growing practices, while also improving as creative designers. They find great joy and satisfaction in both growing flowers and sharing their beauty with their local community. You can find their seasonal, locally and organically grown, flowers at both the St. Matthews Beargrass Christian Farmers Market and Bardstown Road Farmers Market. In recent years, Pure Pollen has expanded their offerings to include a seasonal CSA flower subscription, which features both pick up and delivery options. As a florist, Pure Pollen Flowers offers year-round design services for weddings, events, holidays, and local deliveries.
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, pasture raised chickens, 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!
