CSA PICK UP LOCATIONS:
Our on-campus pick up is Thursday from 4pm-6pm. We also operate a Farm Stand for walk up sales that is open to the general public at this time.
We set up in the Orange lot near the E.S. Good Barn on the corner of Farm Road and University Drive. Look for our pop up tents and white truck under the tree line, marked by a red star on the map.
Our on-farm pick up is Thursday from 3:30pm-6:30pm. We also operate a Farm Stand for walk up sales that is open to the general public at this time and location.
The farm is located at 4321 Emmert Farm Lane. You can enter from Man O War Blvd or through a back gate along Waveland Museum. The parking lot is indicated on the map below, and the pick up is in our packing shed, located on the map below by a red asterisk.
Each year we grow a few crops specifically for folks who want to come out to the farm and you-pick. Some of these crops you may also receive in your share (green beans and basil) others are only being grown for you-pick (flowers, okra, and cherry tomatoes).
Here’s How it Works:
Every week that there is you-pick available we will list what is available (and the amounts each shareholder is allowed) in the weekly newsletter, below the share. The first time you come to the farm we ask that you find one of the organic team (in the organic shed or out in the fields) for a you-pick orientation.
You will need to bring your own harvest containers and – if you are interested in okra or flowers – your own pruners or scissors. All you-pick crops will also be marked in the field with a “you-pick” sign. In 2017 the main you-pick field is located closest to the parking lot.
You may come to the farm for you-pick anytime during the normal farm hours, Monday through Friday 7:30am-4:00pm, with extended hours on Thursday until 6:30pm. We are closed on all major holidays including Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day.
We ask that you park your vehicle in the parking lot and walk to the you-pick area to keep vehicles out of our fields. However, if you require assistance to get to our fields or if there is an issue of accessibility, we can make exceptions but please talk to a staff member first for guidelines.
Directions to the Farm:
The Horticulture Research Farm is located on the southwest corner of Man O’War and Nicholasville Road. From the UK campus, head south (towards Nicholasville) on Nicholasville Road. Turn right onto Man O’War Boulevard. Take the first left turn (there is a stoplight) onto the farm. During the day, you will need to pull within inches of the farm gate to trigger it to open. Once on farm road stay straight, eventually passing a large parking lot to your right and several large greenhouses on your right. Once you have passed the greenhouses you will see a small parking lot on your left. You’ve made it to the Organic Farm! Park in this lot and find a member of the CSA team.
