What We Do


Tallgrass Farm Foundation
is a 501c3 non-profit agricultural and environmental education resource model practicing rural land use that is environmentally and culturally sustainable. By reclaiming, preserving and adapting its rural Kentucky landscape, along with what is believed to be the state’s oldest bank-style barn, Tallgrass Farm Foundation offers facilities and resources for teaching and demonstrating cooking, conservation and good stewardship of natural and agricultural resources.

Tallgrass Farm is preserved in perpetuity through an agricultural conservation easement.
