At Fox Run Produce and Education Center 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 raise several breeds of heritage livestock and are members of the American Livestock Breeds Conservatory. Our livestock enjoy fresh pasture and a natural healthy lifestyle. We feed (and sell) New Country Organics feed 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".
We sell fresh produce, flowers and meat through local markets contributing to the health and economic viability of our community. We have a CSA with pick up on the farm in Falmouth and delivery to several neighborhoods in Campbell County and Independence in Kenton County.Learn more about our CSA under the "Sell" tab. We will be vendors at Covington Farmers Market this year.
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 substantial part of our own food, plan our trips to maximize gas usage and consider our impact on the environment when making purchases.
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.
We consider education to be the cornerstone of our business!
We host interns and college students seeking to learn more about sustainable agriculture and lifestyles. (see internship slide show under "the experience" tab)
