Clark home to two 2020 Certified Farm Markets

Beech Springs Farm Market and Fink Meats of Clark County are two of the 103 markets across the Commonwealth accepted into the 2020 Kentucky Farm Bureau Certified Farm Market Program.

In joining the KFB Certified Farm Market Program, these markets have committed to offering quality products and service to their customers.

Acceptance by Farm Bureau tells customers that this market meets the highest standards of quality, freshness and marketing appeal.

Located off Highway 627 South in Winchester, Beech Springs Farm Market is a seasonal market featuring fresh fruits, vegetables, beer cheese and honey along with other local and Kentucky Proud products. Their fried pies are also a favorite for guests. Seasonal fall and spring plants and decor are also featured in a picturesque setting. Visit their Facebook and Instagram pages for more information.

Fink Meats provides customers frozen lamb retail cuts. Their meat comes from lambs raised on their farm and processed in a USDA facility. Additionally, Fink Meats provides their customers recipes and cooking tips upon request.

In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, Certified Farm Market members around the state are implementing recommended best practices for keeping employees and customers safe during the pandemic.

Our markets are working hard to provide Kentucky consumers with a safe and local food source

“As we reach an exciting 25-year milestone within the Kentucky Farm Bureau Certified Farm Market program, I would like to thank all those who have been participating for so many years, and I welcome our new members,” KFB President Mark Haney said. “It is such an important time in the life of our local markets as more and more people discover the benefits of good, wholesome, locally grown and produced goods. We look forward to another 25 years of continued success.”

Markets certified through this program are identified by the KFB Certified Farm Market logo and listed in an online directory.

The program also provides collective advertising, promotional items, educational tour opportunities and other marketing benefits with the intent to increase the net farm income of member markets.

The KFB Certified Farm Market Rack Card is available at Kentucky welcome centers, state resort parks, local chambers of commerce/tourism centers, and county Farm Bureau offices. Consumers can also go to the KFB Certified Farm Market website, kyfb.com/certified, for a complete list of markets or download the KFB App.
