​Courtney Farms raised vegetables are virtually a brand in many area grocers, including Kroger. This family farm located in Bagdad, Kentucky has a produce distribution plan that includes local schools, chefs and caterers, hospitals, restaurants, grocery stores, special events, and many other venues.


AIN members have a unique opportunity to learn about this successful operation which in addition to vegetables also includes corn and soybean production and a beef cattle herd. On Thursday, September 7 we will meet at the farm at 10:30 am. The farm is located at 7255 Vigo Road (Hwy 1005), Bagdad, Kentucky. We'll be hosted by Mary and Shane Courtney. They will give us an overview of their business, and we'll take a field tour along with a visit to their packing barn. They will answer questions throughout the visit.
