LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Brown’s Farm Fresh Produce of Ohio County is one of the 105 markets across the Commonwealth accepted into the 2020 Kentucky Farm Bureau Certified Farm Market Program.

In joining the KFB Certified Farm Market Program, Brown’s Farm Fresh Produce has committed to offering quality products and service to their customers. Acceptance by Farm Bureau tells customers that this market meets the highest standards of quality, freshness, and marketing appeal.

In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, Certified Farm Market members around the state are implementing recommended best practices for keeping employees and customers safe during the pandemic.  Our markets are working hard to provide Kentucky consumers with a safe and local food source.

They are a  simple roadside stand selling the bounty they raise right here in Ohio County!! Come and let their family share their fresh strawberries, tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, sweet corn, peaches, apples, watermelons, cantaloupe, peppers, cabbage, candy onions, and pumpkins.
