In the heart of Kentucky's bluegrass country near the historic village of Midway, noted cookbook author Susie Quick has founded a nonprofit sustainable farm. The mission of Honest Farm, a 501(c)3 organization, is to raise community awareness of holistic farming practices by creating a children's garden and farm stand offering fresh produce to residents and visitors to the Midway area. We call the food we raise "honest" because it's grown pretty much the same way our grandparents grew their food before the days of industrial farming and the widespread use of chemicals in farming. In other words, we use a lot of composted horse manure for fertilizer, regularly rotate crops, and plant cover crops of clover and buckwheat to add nitrogen and organic matter to the soil. This creates the healthiest and richest soil for our crops and the most delicious and nutrient rich food imaginable. We also plant flowers and herbs in between rows of vegetables to attract beneficial insects and we concentrate on those crops that we can grow successfully using organic methods and organic approved products. Honest Farm is currently in transition to becoming a certified organic farm.
