Welcome to Fox Run Produce and Education Center where we practice what we teach
Independence through self - sufficiency!
At Fox Run Produce and Education Center we strive to maintain harmony with our environment in all things we do. We use sustainable organic farming methods, treating our land like a living organism.We do not use petroleum products or man-made chemicals on our plants; instead believing that by properly nurishing the land the plants will be healthy and strong. By using farm produced compost, leaf and bark mulch we maintain optimum plant nutrition which means more nutritious food for ourselves, our animals and you our customer. We raise heirloom vegetable varieties that are well adapted to our area and known for their flavor . Several of our products are on the Ark of Taste with Slow Food.
We raise heritage livestock and are members of the American Livestock Breeds Conservatory and the Sustainable Poultry Network. Our livestock enjoys fresh pasture and a natural healthy lifestyle. We feed non-GMO natural feeds to supplement their diet and hay in winter when the pasture is sparse. Check out our farm pictures under "The Experience" and then "Photo Gallery".
Education is the cornerstone of our business. We offer onsite classes and workshops on self sufficiency, alternative energy and organic gardening as well as participating in community education projects. We host interns, offer weekend intensives and work with local high schools and colleges to promote agricultural and environmental programs.

At Fox Run we believe in living a simple sustainable lifestyle that is considerate of the earth's natural limited resources. Fox Run is totally Off Grid - our energy comes from solar panels, rainwater harvesting and people power! We raise a substaintial part of our own food, plan our trips to maximize gas usage and consider our impact on the environment when making purchases.
By selling fresh produce, flowers and meat through local markets we contribute to the health and economic viability of our community. We operate a CSA with delivery to Falmouth , Boone and Campbell counties in Northern KY and Cheviot in Hamilton County , OH. Learn more about our CSA under the "Sell" tab.
