Welcome to Fox Run Produce
Independence through self - sufficiency!
At Fox Run Produce we strive to maintain harmony with our environment in all things we do. We are "Certified Naturally Grown" and have applied for our USDA Organic, 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 nourishing 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 believe in supporting local wildlife through preserving several acres of the farm as natural habitat and planting wildlife friendly species. We are a Certified Wildlife Habitat through the National Wildlife Federation. Ame is a licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator with the state of Kentucky and is the founder of our sister organization Fox Run Environmental Education Center, a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.
