the farm

Marksbury Farm Market opened in Lancaster, Kentucky in August 2010, filling a pressing need in Kentucky’s fast-growing local food economy. Each of the Marksbury partners bring varied backgrounds, diverse talents and unwavering commitments to delicious sustainably raised food. The company’s logo reflects its commitment to maximizing the value of Kentucky’s rich pasture and strong farm family traditions through production of the highest quality local, grass-fed meats. All Marksbury products are free of antibiotics, steroids and hormones. We partner with area farmers who share our commitment to land stewardship, animal welfare, and the highest quality standards to bring our products to your dinner table.


Additional Free Post-Workshop Tours 

After the workshops join us for two special tours at Marksbury Farm.

*Tours will be offered simultaneously, but will be offered multiple times.


Tour the Processing Facility

Take a walk through the Marksbury Farm Market processing facility, a 12,000-square-foot multi-species slaughter, processing and packing plant producing both Marksbury’s branded products and privately labeled products of dozens of producers from throughout the region. See Marksbury’s commitment to animal welfare, the poultry processing line, the large animal slaughter floor, the multi-species processing floor, and the certified kitchen and smokehouse.


Take a Pasture Management Tour

The Marksbury Farm Market facility is located adjacent to a 1500-acre farm, most of which is dedicated to sustainable grain production. The areas closest to the facility are home to grazing species, and this walk along these paddocks will provide an overview of the Marksbury pasture management methods used to produce improved soil, better forage, and top-quality meats.
