Located in the heart of Scott County, Kentucky, HomeGrown Direct specializes in providing fresh, local produce to communities across the commonwealth

Over the past decade, brothers and ninth-generation farmers, Jacob and Beckham Sharpe have transitioned their family tobacco farm into a diversified 230-acre farming operation. The farm is home to a registered Angus herd, quality hay, a variety of vegetable plots, and the up-and-coming Sharpe legacies Jax, John Parker, and Jane; future Kentucky farmers in the making!  

We at HomeGrown Direct understand that agriculture and community go hand in hand, and we take great pride in our partnerships with other local farmers.

Through these partnerships, we advocate for the stewardship we know is required to plant, grow and harvest fresh, quality produce. We also gain access to a wider variety of local, seasonal goods to share with our customers.


HomeGrown Direct strives to create a locally supported and transparent food system, to ensure our customers know the farm and the face behind each product.
Named Kentucky Local Food Hero in 2014, Jacob Sharpe is currently serving as the youngest board member of the Kentucky Vegetable Growers Association.
Jacob, Beckham and their families are dedicated to ensuring the longevity and continuation of state and federal support programs, which are in place to assist farmers and aid in the production and movement of fresh produce statewide.

Farmers that work together, grow together

HomeGrown Direct was built on a core belief in community agriculture-handed down over generations, with a focus on caring for your land through healthy crop rotation, shared utilization of local community resources (such as greenhouses and co-op spaces) and an intimate understanding of the importance of supporting other KY Proud finished goods and growers.

Ultimately, this mindset encourages the production of diverse varieties of produce on farms across Kentucky, that grow phenomenally in the area, are able to be picked at the peak of freshness and most importantly-taste delicious!


We will share the amazing produce and goods that Kentucky has to offer with neighborhoods across the state.
