Two NKY Farms Certified for State Farm Market Program

Freezer pork is also available which is raised at a neighboring farm. Other products include fresh eggs, local honey and organic bone broth locally made. Little Rock Farm also has homemade baked goods, jams and jellies. Give them a call when visiting the farm if you have questions about their honor system check out process.
Free Radical Ranch is a working, diversified 44-acre farm with animals, produce, fiber, and gifts! They humanely raise non-GMO beef and pork, grassfed lamb and chicken and duck eggs. Their meat is locally processed and comes in USDA-inspected frozen vacuum packs and are sold by the whole, half, quarter, or cut. The sheep at Free Radical Ranch are registered Katahdin hair sheep and their pigs are half Idaho Pasture pig.
