SlakMarket Farm LLC, Lexington, KY
SlakMarket Farm is building new structures on the farm, including a greenhouse and a barn. The barn will be used for animals as well as for post-harvest production and processing of honey, vegetables, and value-added products. The greenhouse will be used partially for a small enclosed aquaponics pond, which will act as a swimming place for their ducks and grow nutrient-rich food for their cows. The greenhouse will also house a classroom, seed starter production area, and space to over-winter their chicken flock.
