Welcome to Double Stink Hog Farm!
Yes, it is true! We are no longer raising sweet corn, pumpkins, or
other produce. As documented in the Lexington Herald-Leader the
farm is for sale. The two brothers, Howard and Tom, who have been
farming here for all of their adult life are approaching retirement
and none of the next generation were able to take on the role
because of other careers from the West coast to the East Coast and
several locations inbetween. While everyone involved enjoyed
bringing farm fresh produce and entertainment to people who would
not normally have access to it; however, griculture is proving to be
a difficult challenge and a gamble every year. Currently the farm
is still in operation, but only producing crops like wheat, field
corn, and soybeans.
This website will still be in existence to provide history of the
wonderful times and events that have taken place on Double Stink Hog
Farm. It also serves as a perfect example of the changing
atmosphere in agriculture since it has been produced by one of the
second generation who has been involved in teaching in Western
Double Stink Hog Farm is famous for
two things in Central Kentucky: Sweet
Corn and Pumpkins. We are
also home to the original PUMPKINFEST
in Central Kentucky.
In the past, from July 4th to the middle of
August we raised some of the sweetest corn you would ever taste, not to mention plenty of other delicious
From Mid September to October 31st, our
farm was transformed into a giant pumpkin playground for kids of all
ages. You could find a petting zoo, horse drawn hay rides, a
children's play area, a scare crow village and of course - pumpkins of
all shapes, colors, and sizes! And on the weekend, there was PUMPKINFEST!
Thanks for stopping by.
