Marion County Country Ham Days
Comments: The last full weekend in September we celebrate Marion County Country Ham Days, a “Kentucky Top-Ten Event,” hosted by the Marion County Chamber of Commerce along with its business partners and volunteers. The festival welcomes over 40,000 visitors each year. The event began in 1969, and started with a mere six hams and a small number of volunteers. Today, Ham Days serves over 4,000 pounds of country ham at our famous Country Ham Breakfast and recruits over 500 of Marion County volunteers.

Elmwood Stock Farm Fall Daytime Tour
Comments: The final From the Ground Up Farm Tour of the year takes place October 18, 9-11 am, at Elmwood Stock Farm, in Georgetown, Ky. Fall is a peaceful time of year on the farm as the busiest season winds down, and this is a great time to follow Elmwood’s Mac Stone through the ins and outs of organic farming, from vegetable seed to your table. Take a look at the farm’s chickens, turkeys, cattle, sheep and pigs, too! Pre-registration is required at
