Stepping Stone Farm

An Eighth Generation Family Farm

Nestled in the heart of central Kentucky, Stepping Stone Farm is an agritourism destination rooted in family, community, and agricultural education. As eighth-generation farmers, our family has been farming the same land since 1790!

Stepping Stone’s journey began with a single sunflower field intended to host dove hunts for family and friends. Little did we know, this small endeavor would blossom into a vibrant photography destination, attracting hundreds of people each sunflower season, eager to capture the beauty of the sunflowers in full bloom.

The story took an exciting turn when Dana and Trudie Reed of Reed Valley Orchard reached out to us, looking forward to the next chapter in their adventure. It was an opportunity that Ally (sister), Hanna (sister-in-law), and Brandon (brother) couldn't resist. Inspired by the Reeds, and driven by a shared vision to expand beyond the sunflower fields, we embraced the challenge to cultivate a full-on agritourism experience.

Our dream for Stepping Stone Farm is to provide a unique family-farm experience where visitors can learn about the value of Kentucky’s agricultural products and history. Offering everything from 'u-pick' fields to educational farm tours, the farm is a vibrant space of learning, community, and connection.

With the wisdom and mentorship of the Reeds, we've transitioned into overseeing the full operation of Reed Valley Orchard as Dana and Trudie enjoy retirement. In hopes of keeping family traditions burning bright, Reed Valley continues to offer 'u-pick' opportunities on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays throughout the season. For those who prefer to let others do the picking, our market at Stepping Stone Farm is open Thursday through Monday, stocked with the freshest picks of the season.
