Handpicked

Handpicked, a subsidy of HomeGrown Direct LLC is located in Georgetown, Kentucky. This is our farm program that allows us to share with individual families on a more personal level.

It will enable you to know the farmer behind your food and better create a transparent food chain that has your family as its top priority.

From Our
Farm to Your
Family

We offer fresh, locally grown produce from our farm and surrounding Kentucky Proud farmers. For the 2023 season we will be partnering with Berkshire Farms, Cornett Enterprises, Gallrein Farms and Evans Orchard to bring you delicious vegetables and fruits.
