Elmwood’s Livestock Story: The Chickens, Turkeys, Sheep and Cattle
Elmwood Stock Farm was founded with a focus on cattle production decades ago. Today, cattle are essential to the sustainable, organic farming methods used on the farm. Joining them are chickens, turkeys and sheep–each with their own part to play in the farm ecosystem. This tour will cover the intensive management and planning that goes into keeping all of Elmwood’s animals happy and healthy. Elmwood’s Mac Stone will discuss organic livestock health care and nutrition, rotational grazing, hay production, fencing and breeding on the farm, plus the benefits that organic, pasture-raised animal products offer to consumers. Guests will also learn the history of the family farm and its transition to USDA organic, diversified livestock production.

Elmwood Stock Farm, in Georgetown, Ky., is a 6th-generation family farm that began as a producer of Black Angus breeding-stock cattle. The cattle are still an important part of the farm ecosystem and farm business, though over the past decade, the farm has branched out to produce a variety of organic vegetables, fruits, meats, eggs, tobacco and even compost. Elmwood is committed to healthy and wholesome production of superior, high-quality, fresh farm products. Organic certification and close family involvement ensure that safe and sustainable farming practices are followed, livestock are well cared for, and land and water conservation remain a priority. Elmwood’s produce, eggs and meats can be found at farmers markets, local restaurants and grocery stores, and through its CSA programs in Kentucky and Ohio.
