Individuals and families have made $5,000-$10,000 gifts for projects at Homeplace including for the home and reconstruction of an early log to***co barn. The combined 800+ acres and surrounding region add to Homeplace‚Äôs strength as a potential major tourist destination. The Homeplace on Green River and adjacent Tebbs Bend/Green River Nature area owned by Taylor County are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Hi Friends, Plow Day is still scheduled for this Saturday and we are so excited to see you there! However, if the current weather prediction does indeed prove true, the plowing event will be canceled but we will be there should the rain showers give way to sunshine during mid-morning. A few other activities may be reduced too, but the majority of the fun will still be happening at Homeplace, should the weather be better than predicted.

Music all day at the Homeplace festival. Green County’s Exie Boys will lead-off at 10:45 e.t. in the newly renovated show barn. They’ve been playing the bluegrass at almost all the festivals over the past 11 years. The Exie Boys will be joined by Renetta and Her Friends and the young folks from the Burkesville Fine Arts Association and the Taylor County’s Unity of Praise Youth Choir from the Pleasant Union Baptist Church.

Really enjoyed the day at plow days we loved the plow teams!!‚̧ԳŹ This was our third time going and finally the weather allowed us to enjoy all of it!! Great job guys!!
Saturday’s fall heritage festival at Homeplace drew a record crowd of more than 2,000. The weather was perfect and the program was filled with interesting and fun activities. None if it would have been possible without the volunteers from Adair FFA, Campbellsville’s Healing Place and Lindsey Wilson College Bonner Students and the many artists, crafters, exhibitors, food vendors and other attractions.
We had a great time at Fall Festival. Wonderful customers and families enjoying the day. Anyone that missed our booth can find us this fall at Market Off Main in Campbellsville and The Casey County Apple Festival. Our website is kyfarmstore.com. See you next time!
